Bookbuzz is a reading programme from the BookTrust, which supports schools to encourage reading for pleasure, independent choice and develop a whole school reading culture.
As a participating school we gave all Year 7 pupils the opportunity to choose their own book to keep from a list of 17 titles suitable for 11- 13year-olds, which are selected by a panel of experts.
As the books were delivered just in time for Christmas, each book was individually wrapped and given to Year 7 pupils during their last English lesson of 2017.
Each book is to be kept by the students and will also be an ideal way to gain Accelerated Reader points over the festive season.
