Following on from the huge success of our creative writing last year, we are very excited to have been chosen as one of 8 schools in Shropshire to be part of the Shropshire Bookfest 2020 shortlisting. We have been given 10 different books to read and review, before choosing and championing one we feel should be added to this years shortlist for 9-11 year olds. There are 81 titles which have been sent to the organisers this year from different publishers, all wanting a place on our list. Our group of Year 6 children have until half term to read, discuss and choose our favourite book.
Shropshire Bookfest will announce the shortlist in the new year where all of our class will be able to read, review and vote for their favourite book. In April we will be attending The Big Boook Award ceremony at Theatre Severn in Shrewsbury with the authors of the shortlisted books where the winning book will be announced. We are hoping to share some our creative writing at the ceremony too.
