Oxfordshire Book Awards
A group of NCS avid readers, from Years 3 to 7, were selected to represent the school at this year’s Oxfordshire Book Awards on Thursday 10 November.
Mrs Brown and Mrs Hess were proud of the boys’ behaviour and engagement in the event. Thomas’s suggestion of a name was used by the illustrator Sam Usher for his pirate in the drawing workshop; Eddie correctly answered a literary question and received a golden ticket for a book of his choice; and Albert bravely asked a question of one of the authors. We all enjoyed the energy of the compere, Jo Cotterill; sang along with John Dougherty; posed for a photo with Onjali Q Rauf; and received pencils, programmes, free books for the school library and plenty of cake. We now know what the shortlisted books are for next year so encourage everyone to get reading!
