2016 Bookbuzz

30th Sep 2016

We are delighted to be involved with Bookbuzz again this year

Year 9s have all picked their books and can’t wait to get started reading their favourites.

How many will you read? We have an additional 2 copies of each book in the library, for anyone who would like to get involved.  See Mrs McArdle for more information on this year’s Bookbuzz collection or to borrow any of the books.

“All of the books chosen are designed to appeal to all students, regardless of their level of reading. The list embraces all sorts of genres - such as thrillers, magic and fantasy - and contains picture books and graphic stories, as well as novels. As a result, the programme is a great opportunity to inspire a love of reading” Bookbuzz web page
