Hello readers and welcome back to a new year at Scissett!

We hope everyone has managed to settle back in to the rhythm of things, and that new starters are feeling welcome to the school.

With the new year comes a new Reading Ambassador team, with some new and some returning faces! We'd like to use our first blog post to introduce ourselves. Here we are!


Here's a bit about us!

Mabel, Year 8:

Hi, I'm Mabel and I'm in year 8. I love books! My favourite is "Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire". I have recently been reading "Amari and the Night Brothers", "This Poison Heart" and "This Wicked Fate". I have enjoyed all of these books!

Isla, Year 7:

Hi, my name is Isla and I am in year 7. I am really passionate about reading, which is why I wanted to be a Reading Ambassador again this year. Personally, my favourite novels are the ones by Jane Austen, as they are very interesting and keep readers hooked in until the last page. I think everyone should be able to enjoy different genres of books, so remember to try out as many different types as possible!

Olivia, Year 7:

I love to read and talk about books! I have read: 5 of the Harry Potter books, The Diary of a Wimpy Kid (all except 2 of the series), 3 David Walliams books, 2 Roald Dahl books and lots of books from the school library.

Abigail, Year 7:

Hi, my name is Abigail and I'm in year 7. My top 4 favourite books are: "The Racehorse Who Wouldn't Gallop", "The Racehorse Who Disappeared", "The Racehorse Who Learned to Dance" and last, but not least, "The Day I fell Into A Fairytale"!

Zac, Year 7:

Heya! I'm Zac. One of my biggest passions has to be reading and I have so many favourites.. these vary from Tom Gates, Harry Potter to the Chronicles of Narnia. I have loved books for a while. Here is a list of recommendations, to get you going:
- Holes by Louis Sachar (Which you will read in Y7)
- Room 13
- The Christmasaurus
- The Creakers
- The Boy at the Back of the Class
- The Boy Whose Wishes Came True

Harry, Year 7:

Hi, I'm Harry! You may recognise me as I was a Reading Ambassador last year. I am currently reading "Looskin the Maddest Cat in the World" and "Amari and the Night Brothers" (for a second time!) I would also highly recommend the book "Oneyka and the Academy of the Sun" which is part of a series, with book 2 coming out in February.  

Sam, Year 7:

My name is Sam. I enjoying reading historical non-fiction, fantasy, military wars and some fiction. I love reading and my favourite book is "The Aircraft Book" because it has so much information!

We can't wait to share our love of reading with you and hope you join us on our quest! Look out for our next blog, which will be all about Black History Month and Halloween reads! 

Don't forget, the library is open break times and lunch times, we'd love to see you there!
