Picture Book Award
Children in Year 1 took part in this year's Picture Book Award. All pupils had to read, or have read to them, the four books that were shortlisted. The titles were Eleanor's Eyebrows, Jack's Amazing Shadow, Spaghetti with the Yeti and The Black and White Club. Year 1 pupils from schools across Portsmouth then had to vote for their favourite book. The votes were counted by staff from the School Library Service who announced the winner at various events across Portsmouth. Ark Ayrton hosted one of the events and were lucky to have the winning author Tom Percival attend. His book Jack's Amazing Shadow was the overall winner!
