Library NewsThe extremely embarrassing life of Lottie Brooks’
by Katie Kirby

Reviewed by Imogen T

This book is all about making friends as you move into secondary school. Lottie Brooks gets advice from her next door neighbor Liv on how to start school. Things didn’t start well until she met her best friend for life, as they say. Things are tough for Lottie as she tries to stay in contact with her best friend who moves away. Will she come back to Lottie?

Would you recommend this book to a friend? YES

National story telling week January 30th – February 7th

Year 12 students Declan and Issy gave up their afternoon February 7th  to read to some of year 7 in their English lessons with the added treat or milk and cookies.

Using a story dice to help us choose the tales they regaled Roald Dahl’s ‘Revolting Rhymes’ with such great humor and horror.

A massive thank you to Declan and Izzy.
