As the Reading Ambassadors we have been very lucky to be involved in the judging of the ‘Young People’s Book Prize’ 2024. We were sent a selection of wonderful books which would inspire a love of science and reading non-fiction. We shared these books with our class and then we judged which book we considered to be the best. It was a very difficult decision! Now we have completed our judging, we will now share these with the rest of the school during our lunch time book club on the bus! We wonder if the rest of the school will be able to guess which one we voted the winner!

We were lucky enough to attend an author visit with our friends at Woodside Primary school. Mitch Johnson told us all about his new book Toxic and how he was inspired by the unusual amphibians which inhabit the Amazon rainforest. His talk was very inspiring and we learnt some fascinating facts about the rainforest – some facts were even quite shocking! He also told us about the other books he has written and the journey he went on to get his first book published. What a great morning we all had!
