Bookfest in Bridgnorth

Castlefields school in Bridgnorth held their first Bookfest just before the end of term, with the aim of getting children excited about reading. The year-long project, which has included drama workshops, creative art activities and movie making, culminated in a visit from best-selling author Adam Baron and a special award ceremony attended by pupils, parents, governors and guests.
During Castlefields Bookfest, children read shortlisted books for their age group and voted for their favourite. The winning books were: The Ugly Five by Julia Donaldson, Tom’s Magnificent Machines by Linda Sarah, Super Happy Magic Forest by Matty Long and The Boy at the Back of the Class by Onjali Q Rauf.
Emma Spenser, manager of Bridgnorth Library, who attended the event, says, “It was fantastic to see over 200 children cheering for their favourite authors and having a real excitement about reading.”
