The Book Awards

Year 1 are taking part in the Portsmouth Book Awards 2020! Children across Portsmouth, in Year 1, get to read four books and then vote for their favourite. The author is then crowned the winner of the book awards 2020! In school, we have already read 'Octopants' and 'Ducktective Quack and the Cake Crime Wave.' It would be fantastic if you could listen to all four stories and start to think about your favourite book.


All four books on the Y1 Picture Book Award titles are now available as read aloud videos as follows:


 'A little bit brave' readings available by Macey Johnson and Kayla Jerman


'Octopants' read by Suzy Senior and also Read aloud by Suzy Senior and Claire Powell


'I don't want to be small' read by Caroline Prince


'Ducktective Quack and the Cake Crime Wave' read by Caroline Prince


We hope these readings help pupils to decide upon their favourite book. You can always write a book review after listening to each one to help you decide!


Happy listening.
