Staffordshire Young Teen Fiction Award – 2019

Ten year 7 students have taken part in the Staffordshire Young Teen Fiction Award for 2019. The culmination of this project was to attend the Celebration Day at RAF Museum Cosford, Shifnal, where they met two guest authors Laura Wood and Ally Sherrick. One of the shortlisted books was written by Ally Sherrick, ‘The Buried Crown’, a book on which the students had painted a canvas. On the canvas they had depicted the main themes of the story and wanted to present it to the author on the day. This did take place, which was an experience the students will never forget. They thoroughly enjoyed discussing the book and canvas with the author.

Ally Sherrick has reported this on her web page. Recognising the students’ committed engagement in the project and their appreciation of her book.

Participation in this project has been run parallel with the school’s Reading Lesson programme.
