Virtual Story Club
Welcome to all things Virtual Story Club!
YOUR VOTE IS NEEDED!
We need your help in voting for the Christmas Story that I read in the last session of the term. Remember you can choose from:
Book A - A story about some people's least favourite vegetable and it's journey on Christmas day.
Book B - A book about a very small yak and her wish to grow up quickly until one day her herd needs help and only she can do it.
Book C - A story about two children who become Santa's special helpers.
Click on the link below and follow the instructions to cast your vote. Remember, you will need an adult's email address to cast your vote and you can only vote once per email address.
Voting opens on Friday 4th December and closes on Friday 11th December. The book with the most votes will be read on Tuesday 15th December.

I hope you enjoyed week 1 and week 2 of virtual story club. Which story has been your favourite so far and why?
Have a look at Roald Dahl's fantastic website here:
Don't forget, if you have any illustrations for this week's short story 'A way to the Stars' or would like to tell us about your favourite book character, then ask your adult to send it to email@example.com or get them to add them to the album on the Facebook page 'At Mapledene we share and care for our little people'
16 days to go!
Only 16 days till Virtual Story Club starts and I can't wait. I am very busy recording and editing videos ready for our first session. It is going to be a good one!
Who enjoyed the video of 'WANTED: Ralphy Rabbit, Book Thief'? Did anyone have a go at drawing him using the video? If so, you could ask an adult to send a picture to firstname.lastname@example.org or put it in the Story Club Album on Facebook. Don't forget to put Virtual Story Club in the subject line if you are sending it as an email.
Have a look at this video below, which is the story 'Do Not Disturb the Dragons' by Michelle Robinson. It also shows how to draw a dragon by illustrator Sharon Davey.
Enjoy and I hope you are counting down the days too!
If you have any recommendations of stories and want to feature on our first ever Virtual Story Club, then ask your adult to send a short email to email@example.com with your recommendation. You could do this as a video and send it to the same email address. Please ask your adult to put 'Virtual Story Club' in the subject line. When making your recommendation you may want to think about:
- The name and author of the book
- Why you like the book
- Who are you recommending it to and why? You might think about ages or children's interests
- Give it a star rating
