We are thrilled to announce that our Year 6 trailer entry for the Weald Book Awards won first place for the third year in a row! The children created their own trailer based on the book ‘The Peculiar Peggs of Riddling Woods’ and met the authors of the shortlisted books virtually during a virtual awards ceremony. Following our award, the author, Simon J Halpin, sent us some amazing feedback on Twitter. He said, "..my word. I don't think I've ever felt so blown away by something. This felt just as good as seeing your own book for the very first time. @ WisGreen Primary - EXTRAORDINARY. I have tingles all over me.."
Although it has had to be run slightly differently this year, the children really enjoyed reading all of the shortlisted books and discussing them with each other. They worked hard on their competition entries, from writing poems and character descriptions to designing alternative front covers for the books.
