One of our favourite annual events for the pupils in Year 5 and 6. Each year we are given the opportunity to read four shortlisted books and then vote for our favourite, followed by attending the ceremony and meeting the authors. This year the shortlisted books were: Twitch – M.G. Leonard, The Chime Seekers – Ross Montgomery, The Valley of Lost Secrets – Lesley Parr and Children of the Quicksands – Efua Traoré. We enjoyed all of them (some more than most) and entered some of the competitions. The winning book was The Chime Seekers by Ross Montgomery.
