Year 5 Oxfordshire Book Awards Reading Group
A group of Year 5 enthusiastic readers have begun their new book group with Children’s Books editor Kathy Webb. The group will be meeting in the school library at lunch times to read books that have been nominated for the Oxfordshire Book Awards 2020. They will be taking part in discussions and debates and developing a critical appreciation of the books that they read. There are many other pupils across Oxfordshire Primary and Secondary schools also taking part in this event which will culminate in an awards ceremony in November 2020, where children will be invited to attend and meet the authors of the books that they have voted for. This is a fantastic opportunity for St Thomas More School to promote Reading for Pleasure and hopefully this will be something that we can continue in future years to inspire our children to become readers for life. Here are the books that our Year 5s will be reading over the coming months.
