This term, a group of our Y5/6 pupils attended the East Sussex Children’s Book Award event at the De La Warr Pavilion, where they performed in front of schools from across East Sussex. Throughout the school year, the pupils had been reading several children’s books and then meeting with Mrs Morley during lunchtimes to discuss and review each one in turn.

The event at the De La Warr was a celebration of all the schools across East Sussex who have had their pupils reading these books. Many of the authors attended the event and gave presentations about the inspiration behind their stories and the journey to turn these ideas into a published reality. The pupils were able to meet and talk with the authors, as well as perform pieces of their own writing, inspired by the books themselves. It was a memorable and inspiring day for the Evergreen pupils and a wonderful way to celebrate some great children’s books!
