‘Bookbuzz’ – Nov 2016

bookbuzz-image-grid-640

Our new Year 7’s were given the opportunity to buy a book at a reduced cost as part of our annual Bookbuzz programme, a reading programme from Book Trust, which supports schools to encourage reading for pleasure; independent choice and to develop a whole school reading culture. Students chose their own book to buy, at a reduced cost, from a list of 17 titles suitable for 11-13 year olds and selected by a panel of experts.

A selection of some of the mainstream titles received were:

  • You Killed Me! By Keith Gray (Barrington Stoke Ltd)
  • Gorilla Dawn by Gill Lewis (Oxford)
  • 13 Hours by Narinder Dhami (Tamarind, Random House)
  • My Brother is a Superhero by David Solomons (Nosy Crow)
  • Petunia Perry and the Curse of the Ugly Pigeon by Pamela Butchart and illustrated by Gemma Correll (Nosy Crow)
  • I am Malala by Malala Yousafzaia and Patricia McCormick (Hachette Children’s Group)
  • An Eagle in the Snow by Michael Morpurgo and illustrated by Michael Foreman (HarperCollins)
  • The Lie Tree by Frances Hardinge (Macmillan)
