BOOKSLAM 2014

Today we had 2 teams enter the Welsh Book Council 'BookSlam' Competition. Each team had to have a 10 minute discussion with two judges and then put on an 8 minute presentation.

The Year 4 team discussed 'Sid and the Cwmhendy Dog Show' by Tanya L . James and then acted in a presentation on the book 'Run Becca Run' by Elin Meek. They did a fantastic job and showed maturity and an enthusiasm of reading. Both Judges were impressed and we can announce that we were the winner of the Year 4 competition and will now go through to the National Round in Brecon in June.

 

Year 6 discussed 'Dark Tales from the woods' by Daniel Morden and then acted in a presentation of 'Carrie's War' by Nia Bowden. They did not make it through to the next round however they were praised by the judges for capturing the moment in the presentation and showed a fantastic understanding of the text. Any other year they could have been put through.
