The Bookworms co-curricular club have found themselves deeply immersed in the world of literature as they begin working their way through the KYBA shortlist of books. KYBA (Kernow Youth Book Awards) celebrates the best of children’s literature. Six books, covering a range of genres and themes, are selected and students read and discuss the titles. At the moment we are reading The 1,000 Year Old Boy by Ross Welford and the students have been impressed by the narrative shifts and the commentary on the nature of mortality.
Once we have devoured all six books, the students will then vote on their favourite.
We are very much looking forward to the Awards Ceremony at the Eden Project in May; shortlisted authors attend and inspire the audience with wit, anecdotes and an insight into the writer’s craft.
Until then, shhhh, we’re reading…
