Chatterbooks is an after school reading club where children become more involved in reading through games and activities based around a variety of themes. Chatterbooks runs for 10 weeks with each theme lasting for about 2 weeks. There are a variety of activities for each topic from word searches and drawing to acting and making videos. For each theme children choose a book that they think they will enjoy, from a given selection, based around the chosen theme and they have 2 weeks to read as much of the book as they can. Throughout this time children are encouraged to talk about what they have read so far, discuss favourite characters and are given the opportunity to talk about their book to others. This time we looked at the topics Winter Wonderland, Fantastic Creatures, Funny Fiction and Sweet, Treats and Chocolate Treats.
