Yr 7 – Get Booked Up with a free book.

Year 7 students have just completed their Library Induction Lessons and I have to say, they worked extremely well, building their independent learning skills. Hopefully now they feel happy and confident to use the Library and all its resources.

Now we have Booked Up to look forward to! Booked Up’s goal is to encourage reading for pleasure and independent choice. Year 7 students choose their free book from a list of specially selected titles.

It was launched in 2007, inspired by the Bookstart and Booktime programmes, which give free book packs to babies and reception-aged children respectively. The programme is run by Booktrust, an independent charity dedicated to encouraging people of all ages and cultures to engage with books. 

Hear what the authors have to say about their books in the film here.

We will be showing Yr 7 classes the fantastic film in which all authors promote their own book and students of a similar age give their opinions, before taking  orders for the book of their choice. Books are usually delivered in November. Christmas comes early here at Backwell!
