Year 11 Matt Moore Photography Trip
On Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday year 11 Photographers went on a trip to Matt Moore's photography studio in Aldershot. The day was aimed at helping their mock exam prep work while allowing the students to gain experience at what life would be like working in a real-life studio. The students had a great time, see below for their amazing work!
Last week saw the premiere of the new Peter Jackson film, ‘Mortal Engines’, based on the book by Philip Reeve and which is released in the UK on 7th December. Mortal Engines’ is the first of four novels in Philip Reeve's quartet of the same name. The book focuses on a futuristic, steampunk version of London, now a giant machine striving to survive on a world running out of resources. The book has won a Nestlé Smarties Book Prize and was shortlisted for the 2002 Whitbread Award.
If you enjoy the film and haven’t read the book we have a copy in the library along with some of Philip Reeves’ other books. Mortal Engines was followed by three sequels: Predator's Gold, Infernal Devices, and A Darkling Plain. This was followed by the Fever Crumb prequel series: Fever Crumb, A Web of Air, and Scrivener's Moon, which depict events many years prior to those of Mortal Engines.
Last week the shortlists for this years Costa Book Awards were announced. In the Children’s book category, the four books are; The Colour of the Sun by David Almond, Bone Talk by Candy Gourlay, Orphan Monster Spy by Matt Killeen, and The Skylark’s War by Hilary McKay. All four books will be available to borrow from the library very soon.
