Weald Book Awards 2020
Please find opposite the six books which have been chosen for the Weald Book Awards this year. We have ordered copies of these books for class so if you'd like to make a start on these please let the office know and we can provide copies.
The Weald Book Awards takes place each year with the Year 6 children asked to read six different books by six different authors. Children then take part in different activities such as designing a new front cover, creating a character to be included in the story and photographs of children reading in unusual places! All the finished activities are entered into a final competition with other local schools. Finally, there is an exciting final ceremony where the children can meet and greet the different authors. Have a look at some of our entries for this year (2019-20) which are below.
Where we choose to read
Shipley's Books of the Month
Malamander By Thomas Taylor
When Violet teams up with Herbie to help her find out what happened to her long lost parents, little does she realise how her life will become entangled with the Malamander monster of Eerie-on-Sea. A fascinating story that captures a uniquely quirky and fantastical atmosphere. The first of a series.
