Last term, we joined schools across the country as part of the judging for the Young People’s Book Prize 2021 awarded by the Royal Society. Our panel of children from years 5 and 6 had to rate each book in four different categories: interest, ease of reading, look and feel, and inspiration. The scores were consolidated and it was very close but our choice was Under the Stars, a book written by an astrophysicist that gives engaging answers to questions about the night sky. Thank you and well done to everyone on the panel for some brilliant feedback and a lot of reading! The award ceremony is on YouTube in March when we will find out which book has won the prize.
