Books, reading and life in a school library

WoBoD: The World Book Day Award


Here’s is a chance to help the school win one of five prizes (up to £10,000)

World Book Day is in March and to celebrate the work schools do promoting reading for pleasure, this fantastic prize is on offer. James Patterson, author of the Middle School and Maximum Ride series of books has donated £50,000 to this new award.

Pupils, staff and parents / carers are invited to help with the school entry by providing a response to the statement: Why we can’t live without books. We are asking for responses of at least 3 – 4 sentences. Entrants could also be more creative and do a podcast; write a 200 – 500 word short essay; create a poster; write a poem or play, etc. Written entries should be illustrated and colourful if possible.

Entries will be used to produce a display in the library and / or used to create a presentation which will be sent off as our school’s individual entry (depending on style of entries). Further details can be found online at WoBoD. Please note, don’t put your entry in through the form there. Please hand in or send entries (paper or electronic) to Mrs Sinclair, librarian.

Unfortunately, the time scale of this is tight. Official closing date is 30th January but please get entries in by Wednesday 28th January.
