Book Buzz - Junior English
1st and 2nd Formers have had the opportunity to choose a book from 'Bookbuzz', a reading programme from Book Trust. The programme supports schools to encourage reading for pleasure, independent choice and develop a whole school reading culture. This year the two year groups could choose from a range of 12 titles suitable for 11-13 yr olds, selected by a panel of experts. As you can see from the picture, the pupils chose a wide variety of titles and genres; they are all really looking forward to reading them!
The literary exploits of our Junior pupils were featured here back in April during the Carnegie Children's Book Awards. It is fantastic to see so many of our students enjoying reading independently; it is terrific for their academic and cultural development.
Finally, thank you to our school library who paid for every child in the 1st and 2nd Form to have a new book.
