During the Autumn term Year 5 pupils took part in the Picture Book Awards run by Bishop Stortford College. Tutors read the six shortlisted picture books to their class and then pupils voted for their favourite. The Ralph Sadleir results tied with 17 votes each for ‘This is a Dog’ and ‘Dragon Post’
On Wednesday 12th February fourteen pupils were lucky enough to attend the awards ceremony at Bishop Stortford College. At the ceremony we heard a number of authors and illustrators speak about their books and how they went about writing and illustrating these books. Then the moment we were all waiting for, the announcement of who had won the Picture Book Awards. Other schools seemed to agree with our choices as ‘This is a Dog’ was the winner with ‘Dragon Post’ in second place.
