    The Essex Book Awards Update
The Reading Ambassadors had a successful trip to the Essex Book Awards in March, where they won Most Innovative school for their original idea for their promotion of  'Troublemaker' which was one of the books nominated for the award.  The students met the authors and listened to them talk about their inspiration for their books.
We discovered that the winner of the Essex Book Awards 2018 was Stewart Foster for his book 'All the things that could go wrong' which is a story about a boy trying to live with OCD.

They also made a scary book trailer for the book 'Scarecrow' using stop motion technology, the judges thought they used sound well and different mediums to add interest to their trailer. 
Congratulations to our hard working Reading Ambassadors.

They will all be happy to talk to you about the Essex Book Awards and about reading so please ask them lots of questions if you see them.
