Write book reports and go through their presentation. The group selected Salt to the Sea, by Ruta Sepetys to present on.
Salt to the Sea was the most popular book at our event and got the children’s vote. Also was nominated for the ‘Carnegie Medal 2017’.
The attending authoress was Nicky Singer who entertained the children with snippets from her books most enjoyable.
The students enjoyed the whole experience and were a credit to Copthall School.
Many thanks for your committed hard work.
