Year 7 Get A Buzz About Books
It has been Bookbuzz week in school causing much excitement amongst Year 7 pupils as they all received a book of their choice from the Bookbuzz collection.
Mrs Borman’s class were first to collect and they were delighted and very happy to pose for a picture with their new books.
Bookbuzz is a reading programme from the Book Trust that aims to help schools inspire a love of reading in 11 to 13-year-olds. Pupils choose one of 17 different books, from a range of genres, all carefully selected to ensure quality, suitability and to encourage reading for pleasure.
Research shows that allowing pupils to choose their own reading material increases the likelihood that they will engage more in reading and that reading for pleasure has a real impact on educational outcomes.
English Teacher, Nicola Borman, explains, “Bookbuzz is a wonderful way to get pupils interested in books, we had plenty of excitement when pupils made their choices and just as much enthusiasm when I handed them all out today. I hope you enjoy reading your new books Year 7.”
