Year 7s at BWA receive a ‘return to school’ book
All of the Year 7 students at Brooke Weston Academy have been gifted a new book to welcome them back to school as part of a literacy initiative.
The students all chose their own title from the Bookbuzz scheme and they are being encouraged to write their own book reviews in a competition where the winner will receive all the other featured titles.
Literacy co-ordinator Lauren Fitzjohn said: ‘The books are being distributed in tutor time and it is yet another way that we are welcoming them back to school and establishing a strong and vibrant reading culture in school. The books have been very well received and they will provide a starting point for the competition and encourage a lifelong love of reading.’
