Woodbank Book Club

Welcome to our…



This page is designed for all our amazing children and adult readers to share what books they have discovered or would recommend to others. We would love for all our children, parents and staff to add to our Book Club


What have you enjoyed reading lately or previously?

Please click on one of the book review templates at bottom of page and complete. You can type it up or print it off and write it on.

Please send all your reviews to our specific Woodbank Book Club email:


 You can use our templates or write a review in any style you want...check out the guides for writing a book review to help you!

Plus, it doesn’t have to be a story book it can be a non-fiction or perhaps review a comic, newspaper article or even a recipe?


 Parents/carers/families we would love your input too with any books you have read with your children or ones that you would recommend to other adults (suitable for a school website). We are going to ask staff to add to this too!


 Once we return to school we are hoping to get our bus library online system up and running so that you can browse and reserve our school library books.
