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.

Shipley's Books of the Month
Pages & Co.: Tilly and the Bookwanderers
By Anna James
Pages & Co.: Tilly and the Bookwanderers is the kind of book you can never put down, full of fantasy, adrenaline and adventure. I was gripped from the first page to the last. I would definitely recommend this book.
