Thank you to everyone who came to support the Scholastic Book Fair held in the Library from Friday 1st December. The event was very popular and raised nearly £400, 25% of which will be returned to the Library for updating the stocks of books.
To celebrate the event, Mr Bond ran a competition for Year 7, with the chance of winning a £5 voucher to spend at the fair. To enter, they had to submit a book review in 280 characters or less- perfect for a tweet!
The winners of the £5 were Edith Lowe, who reviewed Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, and Fionn Delevan, who reviewed his BookBuzz choice, Danger is Everywhere.
“I would give Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix five stars for its quality storyboard, strong emotions, and vocabulary. JK Rowling uses a good variety of different emotions, feelings and scenarios and the contrast between the different characters makes me feel quite strong emotions towards each one. #BookReview”
“I like this cartoon novel because of the potty humour. It features sharks jumping out of random people’s toilets. The protagonist, Doctor Noel Zone, takes safety precautions way too literally. The message is; be careful, unless you’re a “dangerologist,” or a complete idiot. #BookReview #BethanyBuzz #BookBuzz”
To help draw people to the fair, Matthew Butters and Alexis Casdagli, both in Year 9, designed eye-catching posters featuring some of their favourite books. They also received £5 vouchers each to spend at the fair.
We look forward to bringing the fair back in March 2018 to coincide with World Book Day!
