This week sees the launch of Sandringham Reads. Mrs Bulbeck has spent the last term gathering suggestions from all staff of the books that they think all students should read as part of their education at Sandringham. After being inundated with almost 150 titles, we have decided on a list of 35 books, from a range of genres, both fiction and nonfiction, that have been grouped according to their suitability for each year group.
There is a Sandringham Reads Google Classroom (class code: 5ukzdug), where students can share what they have been reading, and complete a short Google Form for each book read, to receive a reward. Any students who read five of the Sandringham Reads books in an academic year will receive a Sandringham Reads award.
The books are listed below - hopefully during this period of lockdown, reading can be something that we can all enjoy! Please share your reviews to @SandringhamRead.
