In Years 10 and 11, it’s easy to lose the reading for pleasure habit. Library lessons are a thing of the past, and GCSEs are taking up way too much time. This is all understandable, but there’s much to be gained from reading – even if it’s only to get a break from social media and school textbooks.
Each week, AKS English Dept will recommend books in various genres which we hope 14 to 16-year-olds will enjoy.
First up – Space – the Final Frontier. Well, science fiction or sci-fi, at any rate. Next week we’ll do dystopian fiction a sub-set of sci-fi, but we’ll try other worlds this week, so strap in!
