Y6 – Royal Society Young People’s Book Prize

Year 6 pupils have been taking part in the Royal Society’s annual Young People’s Book Prize. Pupils on the judging panel read and reviewed 6 fantastic new Science-based non-fiction books scoring them for the following categories: interest, look and feel, ease of reading and inspiration.

The results are in and the panel’s top-scoring book was Beetles For Breakfast: … and Other Weird and Wonderful Ways To Save The Planet by by Madeleine Finlay (Author), Jisu Choi (Illustrator). Our reviews have been sent to the Royal Society to be collated with those of children around the country before an eventual overall winner will be announced.

All these books (see above link) can now be found in the Magical World of Books and thank you to our Year 6 judges.
