Last term, nine pupils from Year 5 and Year 6 participated in a weekly Reading Book Club run by Mrs Parkinson. During these sessions, they met to read and discuss 6 books nominated by the Harrow Schools Library Service for the Harrow Junior Book Award. On Tuesday 11th June, the nine pupils accompanied by Mrs Courtney and Mrs Parkinson, went to Krishna Avanti Primary School for the Award Ceremony. Several schools were there, and each school read some of their reviews, mainly of the book they had nominated to win the award. Our Book Club made a poster about each of the books, and the pupils gave a wonderful presentation showing all their posters to the large audience. This included the Mayor of Harrow, and last year’s winner Maz Evans, author of “Who Let the Gods Out?”. Maz Evans then gave an excellent talk about her books and being an author, before the winner of the award was announced to be “The Explorer” by Katherine Rundell. Congratulations to the Book Club pupils for their enthusiasm, hard work, and presentation skills: Carys (6C), Erin and Ruth (6S), Niamh, Magnus and Davina (5C) and Matthew, Kacper and Maria (5S). A special thanks also to Mrs Parkinson for running this successful club.
