Oxfordshire Book Awards 2016

On Wednesday 9th November, 9 children from Years 5 & 6 attended the award ceremony for this year’s Oxfordshire Book Award which took place at Oxford High School. As well as meeting the award winning authors Tom McLaughlin, Steve Antony and Lisa Williamson, we were also treated to a demonstration by the illustrator Steve Lenton who was responsible for the amazing illustrations in Broccoli Boy, the winner in the Best Primary Book category.

All of the authors talked to us about what inspires them when they are writing and encouraged us to keep reading and even to have a go at writing our own stories


At the end of the ceremony we were treated to a drink and some delicious cake and then had the opportunity to buy one of the brilliant books we had just heard about.
