Bus Club
Tyne and Wear,
Group status: Book Club starts again this week! Yay for books and cake!

At the reading bus

We are a group of Key Stage 2 readers from Highfield Community Primary School. We have a fantastic bus that was converted into an amazing library. The bus was opened by David Almond! We meet once a week to share reviews on books, eat cake, learn about new books and snuggle up on a bunk or on a swing in our bus. We love reading and are crazy about books! Some of us NEVER stop reading. We are all really different in the group. Some of us love maths, some of us love sport, some of us love writing and some of us love art. We all have one thing in common and that is our love of books.
