Inspiring a Love of Reading in Senior School

BookBuzz is a reading programme from BookTrust that aims to support schools in promoting and inspiring a love of reading in senior school pupils, namely Years 7 and 8.

We have adopted the scheme at Manor House School and it has given Manor House girls the opportunity to choose their own books to keep from a list of seventeen titles suitable for 11 to 13-year-olds. These titles were selected by a panel of experts to ensure quality and suitability.

Copies of the titles were made available in the library this week and shown to the Y7 and Y8 English groups by Mrs Marriott, Library Resources Manager. The girls chose a book which generated great excitement when the orders arrived and have taken the books home to read.

There is lots of book information and recommendations on the BookTrust website www.booktrust.co.uk, listing books by age and genre so if your daughter is ever stuck on what to read next, do take a look.
