Following the excitement of the Bookbuzz scheme in December where Year 7 students were given a free book from a choice of 12, Librarian Ms Wendy McCabe has launched a book review competition to win the complete selection of books.
Bookbuzz is a programme that has been running at Brooke Weston for a number of years, students choose a title from a list selected by a panel of experts, which helps to introduce them to different genres of books and encourages a positive attitude towards reading.
The competition is open to all Year 7 students and they will need to write a minimum of 100 words and no more than 500 on the book they chose, which can be hand-written or typed and may include pictures or drawings.
Titles available to win include; Murder in Midwinter by Fleur Hitchcock which was shortlisted for Best Crime Novel for Children aged 8-12, The Boundless by Kenneth Oppel which was highly commended in the UKLA Book Awards, and Wonder by R.J Palacio which has now been made into a movie starring Julia Roberts.
Ms McCabe said ‘The Bookbuzz programme is a great way to create a positive attitude towards reading. The book review competition allows students to express their views about what they have read and other readers will always be interested in their opinions whether they loved the book or not.’
The closing date for the competition is Tuesday 1 May 2018. If you have any questions about the competition please speak to Ms McCabe in the library.
