Northgate Primary School Book Awards 22- 23!


After the success of our NGPS Book Awards 2021-22, we are so thrilled to launch the NGPS Book Awards 2022-23!


All of the children in KS1 and 2 will be reading and discussing the chosen books, which include Picture Books, Short Chapter Books and Long Chapter Books. 


They will get the chance to make book trailers, posters, book reviews and take part in other exciting activities linked to the books. 


The children will also get the chance to meet some of the chosen authors and to buy a signed book. 


At the end of the year the children will be invited to another Oscar's style Ceremony to find out the winning books and to receive their awards. 


Please see the list of books selected below!

Welcome to this new area of the website where you can discover books that your children will love 😊 

There are so many books in bookshops, in libraries and online, it can make choosing the right book for your child very confusing. I would like to help by sharing with you the books the children love reading when they visit the school library. 


My first recommendation is a whole collection of books by Pamela Butchart.

She has written two different series of very funny books which are both very

popular in our school.  



The first is a collection of books called ‘Wigglesbottom Primary’, which are slightly shorter, easier reads with colour illustrations, that are split up into short stories and are perfect for readers who may prefer something quick to read.  



The second series is also set in a Primary School and follows the adventures of Izzy and her friends in slightly longer books, which are very funny and fast-paced. Books in the series include: ‘My Headteacher is Vampire Rat’ and ‘The Spy Who Loved School Dinners’.
