A group of Year 8 students from our school -Richard Coates Middle in Ponteland – are taking part in the North East Book Awards. They are reading five books and then voting for the one they like the best. Then they will go to an awards evening at the Centre for Life in Newcastle to see meet the authors and see which is voted the best overall. The books on the shortlist this year are:
Soldier Dog by Sam Angus
All Fall Down by Sally Nicholls
The 13th Horseman by Barry Hutchinson
Constable and Toop by Gareth P Jones
The Secret Hen House Theatre by Helen Peters
They have written some acrostic poems about the books they’ve read. Check them out!
