Hampshire Illustrated Book Award 2019

During the Autumn Term, pupils in Cassowary and Kookaburra class have been taking part in the Hampshire Illustrated Book Award.  They have enjoyed sharing six picture books, chosen by the School Library Service to promote the enjoyment of reading, to develop their visual literacy skills and challenge their critical thinking.

Having evaluated each book, our year 5 pupils voted for their favourite title, which was ‘The Bad Seed’ written by Jory John and illustrated by Pete Oswald.¬† Throughout Hampshire, this was the book chosen by the majority of pupils and has therefore been awarded the Hampshire¬†Illustrated Book Award 2019.
