Book Nominees - Reviews

As in previous years the reviews could be hand written, typed on blank paper or into the pro-forma provided. Plain or coloured paper, were also acceptable. Illustrations could be included but the judging was on the quality of the written response to the book.

Members of the Senior Library Management Team had then judged the reviews.

On the day of the awards - The reviews were displayed in the Atkinson Library or Arts Studio, grouped by title.

Awards & Certificates

A prize was awarded to the pupils judged to have written the best review, for each book – (6 prizes in all).

I am pleased to say that two of our pupils; Alicia Oldfield and Erin Craine (Year 7) both won in this category and received a prize (£5 book token) for their amazing written reviews to the books.

Please see all the pupils’ reviews on the school website together with pictures.

The pupils were a credit to the school on the day and enjoyed a tour of the new refurbished Atkinson Art Gallery and Library. We are so looking forward to participating in next years Sefton Super Reads already!
