Book Club: Year 5 & 6

Book Club:  Year 5/6


Members of Year 5 and 6 have combined to take part in the 'Coventry Inspiration Book Awards 2021'!


We are taking part in the 'Hooked on Books' category, which is the award for the best book for young people aged 9-13.

There are eight shortlisted books carefully selected by a panel of teachers and librarians. The books reflect a diverse range of genres and styles giving the reader many different viewpoints on the world. These books were chosen to help readers find the right story for themselves, the one which grabs them and makes them want to carry on reading for enjoyment.


The books will face 'eviction each week, beginning on Monday 26th April, with one book being knowcked out each week in subsequent weeks until the final three is reached on Monday 24th May.  We will then vote for our final book, with the winner being announced on 9th June.


We will also be pitting ourselves against other schools from across Coventry, in the 'Hooked on Books Quiz', where we will have to answer questions about all of the shortlisted books, so the more we read, the better our chances of winning great book prizes and goody bags!


We will be running the quiz on 30th April in school, competing as two teams.
