Today, all of our year 7 students were gifted a book from the English Department. They were all given the option of choosing their books using a list from the Booktrust as part of the Bookbuzz initiative. Bookbuzz is a reading programme from BookTrust that aims to help schools inspire a love of reading in 11 to 13-year-olds. Students can now take home their books to keep. The books are all carefully selected by a panel of experts to ensure quality, suitability and to encourage reading for pleasure.
The National Literacy Trust revealed that a staggering three-quarters of a million (770,129) UK school children don’t own a book. At Castle View Enterprise Academy we are proud to say that through Bookbuzz reading programmes, live author events and World Book Day events. We have gifted over 5000 books to our students over the past 6 years.
We want all of our students to love the books they read.
