Y7 & Y8 students choose new books for the Library

A group of Y7 & Y8 students who have a reading age of 16 years were excited to have been chosen to take part in a new book buy for the Library.

Ian McGow from New Horizons book sellers came into school with a fantastic selection of books from a variety of popular and not so well known authors for the students to choose from.

The students spent a very happy hour looking at the books that they would like to read themselves and which they can recommend to other students.

They finished the session with biscuits and juice and a prize draw of a free book donated by Ian. The concensus was that it was a resounding success, with one of the Y7 boys commenting: “Please can we do that again, it was brilliant!”

The students will be able to quiz on the books on our Accelerated Reader programme which is followed by all of our Y7 & Y8 students.
