All Saints School
Weymouth,
Group status: There's a real buzz in the air about this year's selection.

We read, review, and recommend for anybody!

We are a lively mix of Key Stage 3 students, ready to read, review and recommend. We quite like alliteration too! We've already looked at the Book Trust books this school year.We love a variety of books - especially those which have unexpected endings... Last year we were lucky enough to visit our friends at Allenbourne and meet a Carnegie regional judge, which gave us a real insight into the selection process. Our prediction last year for the amazing "Salt to the Sea" was yet again absolutely spot on! Watch this space for our prediction for this year.
