Last week was so busy with our visits to the National Memorial Arboretum that we didn't have chance to post the next Books That Made Me. Here are Mrs Haywood's and Mrs Johnson's books that have made an impact on their lives:

Last week we joined with the National Literacy Trust, National Memorial Arboretum and The Royal British Legion for visits to the arboretum's new Remembrance Glade. Students explored how symbolism plays a major part in the chosen trees and flowers both in the Glade and memorials across the arboretum. Working alongside visiting poets, they will use the inspiration taken from the visits to create their own, personal remembrance poems which may then be published in a poetry anthology.

#comereadwithme #literacybookoftheweek
The Boy at the Back of the Class, by Onjali Q Rauf, tells the story of Ahmet, a new boy who has filled the empty seat at the back of the class.
He's nine years old, he never talks, never smiles and doesn't even like lemon sherbets! Then the other children learn that he is a refugee who's run away from a aar. A real one. With bombs and bullies that hurt people. The more they find out about him, the more they want to help him...
A sensitive, touching child's eye-view of the trauma and problems facing refugees as they make new lives in new countries.
Available in The Discovery Academy Library.
