Celebrating 20 years of the Branford Boase Award
These teaching notes have been designed to celebrate texts that have been previous winners of the Branford Boase Award . The award was set up to reward the most promising new writers and their editors, as well as to reward excellence in writing and in publishing. The Award is made annually to the most promising book for seven-year-olds and upwards by a first time novelist.
The ideas in the sequence of sessions will support teachers in reading aloud selected texts that have been awarded the prize and talking about these texts with their children, allowing children to respond to and understand the text in greater depth.
