This week, Year 7 have received the books they chose from this year’s Bookbuzz reading programme.
Through this programme, run by the BookTrust, Workington Academy has given each year 7 student a book to celebrate our love of books and reading. Students will be able to take part in the Bookbuzz Challenge and read as many of the fifteen titles on the booklist by borrowing them from the school library.
Participating schools give their students the opportunity to choose their own book to take home and keep from a list of 17 titles suitable for 11 to 13-year-olds. They are all carefully selected by a panel of experts to ensure quality, suitability and to encourage reading for pleasure.
