The book of the month for June is Soccer Squad – Glory by Bali Rai. This book has been chosen to coincide with the World Cup which will take place later this month.
“Dal, Chris, Abs and Jason have made the squad for the local youth club under-lls football team. And after their first match (not as successful as they’d have liked), they are determined to prove that they’ve got what it takes to be winners.
Rushton Reds for the Cup!
Chris is a striker – but can he put the ball in the back of the net when Rushton Reds meet Evington Eagles, their chief rivals, in a big Cup game? He and his team-mates – Dal, Jason and Abs – all want to lift the trophy. But Evington Eagles are the Cup-holders and won’t be easy to beat . . .”
On Friday 23rd June 2017 we had an inspirational visit from the author Bali Rai. He was given a tour of our academy. He also encouraged pupils to read for pleasure as well as information. He talked about how reading can help you to develop skills and grow as a person in life. In his interactive assemblies he also talked about the multicultural society that we live in and British Values. In the afternoon, Bali Rai was interviewed by the Library Monitors and on Ark Radio. He also signed books and autographs for pupils and staff. It was a brilliant day!
Bali Rai will be coming to visit Ark Chamberlain Primary Academy on Friday 23rd June 2017. He will be conducting two assemblies with lower and upper school. He will also be interviewed on Ark Radio and by the Library Monitors. Books will be on sale in the afternoon. This should be an exciting day and definitely one that should not be missed!
