Bookbuzz is a reading programme from Book Trust, which supports schools to encourage reading for pleasure, independent choice and develop a whole school reading culture.
This year, Lea Manor participated in the Bookbuzz programme and gave all year 7 students the opportunity to choose their own book to keep from a list of 17 titles suitable for 11 - 13-year-olds and selected by a panel of experts.
School Librarian, Mrs Hale commented, 'It's wonderful that the books have arrived before Christmas and I get to be Mrs Claus and give each year 7 student a book of their choice. I hope the students will enjoy reading them over the holidays and come back ready to take an Accelerated Reading book quiz and earn lots of book points. Remember, just reading 20 minutes a day significantly increases your reading age. Please encourage your child to read.'
