Description

Alongside action and humour are serious socio-political messages. The power imbalance between rich and poor is a significant theme and there is mention of child labour and exploitation. There are many points in the book that would prompt deep discussions. ‘What defines where someone belongs?’ asks Ajay. He later comments, ‘All that matters about a society is the way it treats its most vulnerable.’ The children’s achievements (in the face of adversity) and their tight friendship makes Ajay and the Jaipur Moon an empowering and heart-warming read. When Ajay’s friend Jai is fearful and doubting himself, Ajay reassures him: ‘You are everything. You can be scared around us. We’ll be your shelter.’

The loyalty of the friends is tested, but Ajay’s optimism, his understanding of himself, and his relationships with others shine brightly throughout. Learning more about what true friendship means he also sees the results of greed and self-importance and how it makes some ignore everything except their own personal gain. Soon Ajay, Saif, Vinod, Yasmin and Jai are travelling to Jaipur, determined to find the meteor and win the prize. But perhaps there is more to discover than they realise. Why is Mrs Surya so secretive? Who is the Man in the Grey Suit, who stole Saif’s engineering tools? And can they stop a terrible threat to every human on Earth? This children’s book is ideal for: Showing how friendships can make even the most timid of us stronger, braver, and more at peace with ourselves. It also shows how just because someone’s reputation precedes them it doesn’t mean it is accurate or shouldn’t be challenged.Finally, April hosts ‘ Say Hello with Jazz Hands Day” to celebrate Jazz Day at the end of the month. A great idea to introduce in assemblies – students, staff and parents can greet each other with Jazz Hands all day. He and his friends even have their own newspaper: The Mumbai Sun. But living on the Mumbai railways means that money is tight.

As The Mumbai Sun and its employees prepare their exclusive story they begin to suspect things are not as clear-cut as they first appeared. With the individual dreams of Ajay and his friends on the line will they have the courage and opportunity to tell the world what is actually about to happen or will they and their newspaper have a very short shelf life? They need a big story - and when a meteor crashes to Earth, and there's a competition to find it, Ajay and his friends find themselves in a space race to Jaipur! Getting to Jaipur is just the beginning - because waiting for them is an opponent with a terrifying ambition. Ajay has become just what he dreamt of, a journalist at his own newspaper. Still living with his friends on the local railways he is finding it an expensive enterprise, and without a printing press, every copy of The Mumbai Sun has to be handwritten. Stress Awareness Month is celebrated in April. Mentally Healthy Schools offers free toolkits for primary and secondary schools that will be helpful in the run-up to SATs, GCSE and Level exams. Lesbian Visibility Week– held in the last week of April. Stonewall’s Lesbian hub offers a range of articles and information that will be useful for secondary schools.

Our guide on how to run a school book club, which covers both primary school book clubs and secondary school book clubs.

The text is a feast for the senses with detailed descriptions of the sights, sounds and scents of Jaipur. It would be fabulous to bring fragrances of sandalwood, jasmine flowers and amber perfume into the classroom to use alongside photographs or video clips of significant landmarks mentioned in the book. How is it possible that Ajay and his team from the Mumbai Sun might locate a meteorite in Jaipur? He is determined to find it ahead of a mysterious, threatening Man in a Grey Suit. After all, won’t the prize money enable the team to buy a new printing press? Then again, Ajay needs money to pay for the return of his precious fountain pen from the pawn shop. International Haiku Poetry Day – the Haiku Foundations has a great range of free resources for teachers.This is an exciting and beautifully written and illustrated book for children aged eight and upwards. It could be the starting point for discussions about what friendship means to them and how they relate to each other’s varying interests and future plans. The narrative of children taking on big business and ruthless wealthy people who want to win no matter the cost will allow students to consider their own feelings about adults in positions of power, such as politicians, influencers and sports stars. This story will also prompt pupils to think about whether they could cope with being responsible for their own survival and living without adult supervision.
