Year 6 News:
Out of hundreds that applied, our school was chosen to take part in a prestigious reading competition.
A group of us read five books about science while taking part in the Royal Society Young People’s Book Prize. Once we had read them, we formed a judging panel and rated the books. After discussing their appeal, interest and appearance, we then selected our favourite.
The winning book was How Machines Work by David Macauley.
The students that took part were Keyley, Jake, Raghav, Eleana, Eshan, Jack, Ben, Lucy, Amber and Ilya.
Keyley said: “I read Project Body – it was appealing because I learnt things about my body that I didn’t know.”
Mrs Claire Foad said: “It has been a privilege that children at our school have contributed to such an important award. The books will now be put in our school library for all the children here to enjoy.”
