Teen pupils participate in young fiction award
Ten year seven students from Alsager School are taking part in the Staffordshire Young Teen Fiction Award.
They are reading the shortlisted books and taking part in discussions and activities based on the books.
Activities range from creating book trailers on the school’s Apple Mac computers, recording the discussions via podcasts, acting out scenes and portraying analysis of the books through art.
The pupils’ involvement in the event will culminate with a visit to the Staffordshire Young Teen Fiction Celebration Day at RAF Museum Cosford, Shifnal, at the beginning of July, when students will meet guest authors, the Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent young poet laureate, take part in a quiz based on the shortlisted books and hear the Staffordshire YTF Book Award winner being announced.
