Sussex Book Club Awards 2018.
On Wednesday 13th June 2018 the St James’s Book Club went to the De La Warr Pavilion in Bexhill to attend the East Sussex Children’s Book Awards. We presented The Dragon With A Chocolate Heart, which is a book that we all enjoyed reading. The other presentations were brilliant, and we thoroughly enjoyed watching them.
Later on we talked to authors Rob Lloyd Jones and Helen Peters. We liked asking questions about their life and books. Finally, we found out who won. It was Evie’s Ghost by Helen Peters! She said that she was surprised at winning, as this was her first award. After that, we got some books signed and spoke to the authors. They were really nice to talk to.
Saranna, Ella, Freya, Sophia, Imogen, Esme, Anja, Michela, Khadijah, Stanley and Oli won some book awards.
We thank Mrs Dennet and Mrs Thomas for organizing book club, Mrs. Simkins and Mrs. Oakley for driving us there, Mr Harrop for making a prop that we couldn’t do without, and last of all, thank you for the parents who supported us endlessly throughout the day. We all had a fantastic time.
Book Club members: Mia, Rachel, Saranna, Alohi, Jemima, Zoe, William, Lorenzo, Stanley, Oli, Louis, Lenny, Michela, Anja, Esme, Imogen, Sophia, Freya, Ella, Khadijah, Isabella, Maria, Sariah & George.
