Year 7 receive free book of their choice thanks to new reading scheme

Some of the books offered by the Bookbuzz reading programme that Year 7s can choose from

Instilling a love of reading from an early age is something that Bolingbroke is passionate about, and to help embed that enthusiasm, Year 7 will soon have the opportunity to choose a book to take home and keep for free thanks to a new reading scheme.

Bookbuzz is a school reading programme for pupils aged 11 – 13, and pupils can choose from 15 titles selected by a panel of experts including school librarians, teachers and children's booksellers to ensure quality and suitability. The books range from non-fiction reads for curious minds to fast paced page turners, with something for all tastes and reading abilities. 

Year 7s will be submitting their choices in reading lessons this week and will receive their gifted book before the Christmas holidays.

Meanwhile, Year 7s are invited to the library to see the books, read all about them and decide on the right book for them with the help of Ms Robinson and Ms Meddle.
