Judging a good read ...
Judging duties for the Hampshire Book Award 2021 started this week and our Year 8 students couldn't wait to get started!
We are delighted to be participating in this prestigious annual literary event organised by the Hampshire School Library Service. The Award goes to the best paperback fiction title published in the previous year for the 11-14 age group.
The main aims of the Award are to promote the enjoyment of reading, support the Key Stage 3 English curriculum and to encourage students to critically assess the books and make a reasoned case in group discussion.
Our students are excited about the rich mix of books on offer and each chose a book to start their reading and judging journey. We can't wait to hear which book they think deserves the Award the most!
And this year's cup winners were Monty House! Go Monty! The cheers could be heard throughout the school, probably throughout Hampshire And if you're Spenser or Austen.... it all starts again in September. #WeAreEggars https://t.co/11g4SYM8Hi 10:47 AM - 23 Jul 2021
Some of our talented musicians were able to play to their parents and carers in a Summer Showcase on Monday evening. Here's a mini taster of our band and their amazing musical talent! #WeAreEggars https://t.co/3wIeXrP16D 6:47 AM - 22 Jul 2021
