Every year the pupils in Year 7 take part in the Cover Story competition which is organised by Richmond Libraries. Each pupil reviews a favourite novel and posts it on the LBRUT website. An important skill in writing a review for this website is to give a flavour of the novel and tempt other readers using a maximum number of characters. This can be challenging!
This year, reviews submitted by four Newland House pupils were selected as winning or highly commended.
The winners were:
Freddie who reviewed ‘The Boundless’ by Kenneth Oppel
Joseph who reviewed ‘Superfudge’ by Judy Blume.
Highly commended pupils were:
Barnaby who reviewed ‘The Nowhere Emporium’ by Ross Mackenzie
Charlie who reviewed ‘Gone’ by Lisa McCann.
All four boys have been invited to a prize-giving ceremony in Richmond Library where they will receive their prizes and certificates from the author Tom Easton.
Congratulations to all the boys.
