Our first Branfil Book Awards was a great success. We are now hoping that we hear back from the winning authors, who the Reading Ambassadors wrote to, sharing the news that they had won our 2021-22 award.
Our beautiful new library was opened officially by our Patron of Reading, Chrissie Sains, in October 2022. It is a fantastic space for the children to choose new books and relax to enjoy reading them together. We will continue to raise money to develop it further this year, supported by our new librarian, Mrs Lang.
A huge "THANK YOU!" to all of our children who took part in our sponsored event last term where an amazing £2000 was raised. The Diveristy & Difference committee of our School Parliament audited each class to find out what themes they felt were missing from their class library books. The Chicken & Frog Bookshop in Brentwood then identified an amazing range of books, totalling £2000, to cover the themes.
Please see the document at the bottom of this page to find out how our approach to reading at Branfil links to recent research.
