We can take part in democractic decisions!

Tuesday 26 April 2022

This week, our Living and Learning statement encourages us  to learn about democracy and to take part in a democratic decision. Therefore, we took time to hold a vote in class. Read on to find out what we were voting for…

To celebrate the publication of Anna James’ fantastic new book, ‘Hetty and the Battle of the Books’, School Library Service (SLS) have partnered with publisher Barrington Stoke to launch a search for the best young reading ambassadors in Leeds.

They are looking for KS2 children who advocate reading for pleasure and encourage others to find their own love of reading with their enthusiasm for books.

Each school is invited to enter ONE pupil into the competition and the five short-listed applicants will be invited to attend an awards ceremony at Leeds Central Library on Saturday 10th July, where the winner will be announced by Anna James and receive the trophy for Leeds School Librarian 2022. The ceremony at midday will be followed by a FREE event for families with the author who will be introducing their latest book.

So our vote today resulted in Scarlet being selected to be the reading champion in our class. Next, the JLT will choose the reading champion in Key Stage 2 to be put into the draw. 

Good luck!
