Year Six Book Fair Takeover 2019 WINNERS

1st October 2019

During Term Four of the last academic year,  the year sixes relished and rose to the challenge of taking control of promoting and running the Scholastic Book Fair. This involved planning and preparing a range of resources which included reading and reviewing books to different year groups, writing and performing a 'Book' song, taking a whole school assembly and running the book fair when it was in school. 

What a success it was: The Book Fair Takeover gave the year sixes a personal investment in the Fair, engaging them more with the reading and creating a real buzz for the whole school and the community. Boosting excitement and attendance at the book fair certainly helped to earn even more free books for the school classrooms and library. All of their hard work was documented in a PowerPoint and entered into The Scholastic Book Fair Takeover Competition 2019.

In September, we found out that our enthusiasm stood out above the other thousands of schools who entered and on Wednesday some of the team came back to join Mrs Hanson for the presentation of a trophy and £500 to spend on... books!
