The Great King's Hall Book Cover Challenge

During this term we have seen our school community embark on a number of tasks and challenges with gusto and creativity. When it came to our Book Cover Challenge –brainchild of our wonderful librarian Mrs M – our pupils certainly raised the bar.

The children were encouraged to put together their book cover creations by dressing up and by using items they could find around the home. Some even enlisted the help of a willing pet in order to produce the perfect book cover.

The results are stunning and Mrs M had the very unenviable task of selecting the three winning entries. After great deliberation, she selected Sam's Frankenstein cover, Alice's Little Women cover and Francesca's Ottoline cover. Sam, Alice and Francesca each received a book token and each of the 35 children who entered the competition was awarded a Headmaster's Commendation for their amazing creations. A huge well done to everyone who took part!

Commenting, Mrs M said: "We really do love to read here at King's Hall and we also love a creative challenge, so it was no surprise at all that our pupils took the brief to "recreate a favourite book cover at home" and really ran with it. I was thoroughly impressed with the many creations that soon flooded in."
