Pupils in Coventry have been rewarded after the Children’s Book Week competition

COVENTRY students have been rewarded after excelling in the Children’s Book Week competition.

The Housing Association Platform has organized a competition comprising both art and literature for Aldermoor Farm Primary School.

Children aged seven and eight took part in a competition to design book covers about new homes, the winner and runner-up received their framed drawings to take home and were displayed in the home exhibition at the new development next to the school.

A donation of 90 children’s books was also given to the school – one for each enrollment – ​​on a range of subjects including animals, space and weather.

Emma Hardy, Assistant Headteacher, said: “The book cover drawing competition has really helped to engage our third year pupils both in terms of drawing and understanding the books.

“The children were given a really open-ended brief and the opportunity to name their book too, so it was great to see their imaginations unleashed.

“We are also very grateful for the donation of 90 children’s books, these will go a long way towards enriching the education of our younger children and hopefully help inspire a love of reading.”

Sabina Cox, Marketing Manager at Platform, added: “We are very pleased to have made this donation to the children at Aldermoor Farm Primary School.

“We hope that students enjoy engaging with these stories and that they help inspire a love of reading or other passions within books.”
