Year 7s get free book each from reading schemePosted on: 19th Nov 2020
We were delighted to be able to use some of the money raised from this year's highly successful Read-a-thon to invest in Book Buzz - a scheme run by The Book Trust that works to inspire a love of reading in 11 to 13 year olds.
Membership of the scheme means that every year 7 student gets a free book so our year 7s have been able to choose from 17 current titles which arrived in the library last week.
English teacher, Ms Elton said: "We have been delighted to get behind this important scheme. We recognise that embedding a love of reading is essential to developing vocabulary in our students and is the skill that supports them across all subjects. Now all students have another book to read during lockdown!"
Here are Ms Elton's 7Y2 class with the books they have chosen. Looks like The Switch Up is popular!
