Nominate your school’s work
Children, parents and school staff have one last chance to trumpet the amazing work going on in their schools for the Kent Literacy Awards.
The deadline for nominations is May 1.
Organisers of the annual event are calling for classroom initiatives that have created a buzz around books, writing, and the spoken word.
Simon Dolby, of the KM Charity Team, which is organising the awards, said: “There is a wide range of award categories from best use of drama or IT to brilliant book clubs and imaginative reading corners. We want to discover how schools are getting pupils enthused about communication in all its forms.”
The winning entries will be showcased at an awards celebra- tion at Hempstead House Hotel, Sittingbourne attended by special guest Phil Gallagher, star of CBeebies’ Mister Maker.
This year, children can submit online or handwritten book reviews for the chance to meet Phil at the Kent Literacy Awards. Find out more at kmcharityteam. co.uk and search ‘book reviews’.
The awards are supported by Kent County Council, Beanstalk, Three R’s Teacher Recruitment, Specsavers, McCabe Ford Williams, and Kent Libraries.
