Now that you have all had the chance to look at the shortlist, and read some of the books, what do you think? I think that this is a very strong list, with a good mixture for boys and girls, a much more balanced list than for a couple of years. It is also much harder to predict a winner on this list. If you want to take part in a Twitter conversation about the shortlist this year then follow the hashtag #tweetCKG
If you are near enough to London to come to this event, then please book yourself in! It will be a great day of sharing good practice and ideas, sessions on self-advocacy and ebooks – what’s not to enjoy for only £5? Details of the day, plus booking information can be downloaded from the files box to the right in the folder entitled LibMeet 2013. Hope to see you there!
This is a great compettion to enter your students into – it is open to everyone under the age of 19. Fantastic prizes too! For more details see this link: http://www.branfordboaseaward.org.uk/HBWC/HBWC%202013/henriettabranfob.html
I just had to put multiple pictures of this beautiful bunting created by Annabel Jeffery from the King’s School Worcester, for a World Book Day display around her school. I am amazed at the hours and hours of work it must have been for her – but what an amazing result! Students and teachers throughout the school were looking at the bunting and commenting – and no doubt issues have increased as a result! What a fabulous and creative way to celebrate World Book Day! What are you doing – anything innovative and special you would like to share? Please email me at Heart and share your ideas with the world!
