Super Spellbinding Award Day
Spellbinding is where a group of people are chosen to try and read 8 different books in 13 weeks. At the end of this up to 4 students out of this group are picked to attend the awards day to decide and find out, along with other school’s student in Cumbria, What the winner book is.
The master of ceremonies for this event was Matt Dickinson, author and filmmaker. He has been on expeditions to the amazing Mount Everest to do documentaries for the BBC and National Geographic. He shared with us today a wonderful presentation and the emotional and physical journey he went through. View the video interview about the day.
The winner of this year’s spellbinding was The Wolf Wilder. You can borrow this from the library. It is an extremely good book and we definitely recommend it.
