Doncaster Book Awards

22nd April 2016

All year our students have been taking part in the annual Doncaster Book Award, and have been busy reading books from a long list.  Students voted for their favorite and on 15th April we attended the finale at Doncaster Dome, where the winning book was announced.  The event gives students the opportunity to meet up with other schools from Doncaster and meet famous authors involved in the book award. 

This year the guest authors were:  Liz Pichon- Tom Gates: A Tiny Bit Lucky, (The Winner) Pamela Butchart- The Spy who Loved School Dinners and comic illustrator Kev Sutherland ( Spiderman and the Beano).

They all gave fantastic reviews of their books, and students made their own illustrations.   Students were invited to ask  questions, and the authors were available to chat afterwards and sign books.
