West Sussex Children’s Book awards

For the second year St Philips took part in the annual West Sussex Book awards scheme, which is supported by West Sussex School Library service.

Pupils from Year 6 represented our school and met with other schools in the locality on three separate occasions at the Ormiston Six Villages Academy (formerly Westergate Community School). As part of the award the pupils had to read nine books which they then reviewed and discussed with other schools. The pupils had the opportunity to meet authors and carry out various tasks related to the books. Congratulations to our Year 6 children who won the final book quiz – the competition was fierce and they competed against secondary as well as primary school children.
