Today, Mrs Lucas and three children from Year 5/6 have been to Walkers' Bookshop in Oakham to spend £200 on new books for the school! The money was awarded to Cottesmore Academy after Mrs Lucas entered a competition. To qualify for the money, we had to spend it in an independent bookstore of our choice and allow the children to choose the books.
The children chose from an amazing array of books and the staff at Walkers' Bookshop were fabulous and very welcoming! The children selected books that were situation for multiple different types of readers throughout the school from early readers to reluctant reader to avid readers! They made some wonderful book choices and we can't wait to read them.
