Year 7 students buzzing about books
 
King Harold Academy has been working alongside the national charity Book Trust to gift Year 7 students with their own copy of a brand new book.

The students made their selections from 11 titles at the beginning of the autumn term and have been waiting in anticipation ever since.

Year 7 student Ella Dewing said: “I was really pleased to receive '13 Hours' by Narinder Dhami. I thought I would like it because of the cover and the blurb. It really described the book well. Having read the first three chapters I'm now really enticed by the story.”

The reading scheme aims to promote a more positive attitude towards reading for pleasure and enjoyment, encourages independent choice and develops a whole school reading culture.

School librarian and organiser Giselle Morris said: “This is a fantastic way to develop excitement about books and reading.

"There’s a great range of titles from established and up and coming authors which cover some exciting and sensitive issues. 

"Furthermore, the books have come alive by activities in our library lessons and by engaging in dialogue with the authors on social media. 

"The students have absolutely loved it, there’s such a buzz about it around the school!”
