We are bursting with the brilliance of Bookflix, our innovative reading recommendation project, here at Southill. Through an interactive display within our school hall, children are able to browse and borrow ‘trending’ books across EYFS, KS1 and KS2 classes based on their very own recommendations. Also included are regular ‘top picks’ which are selected stories based on current topics, because you read or staff suggestions, etc.
Perhaps one of the most exciting elements to our Bookflix project, as well as the opportunity to regularly read plenty of new and exciting books, is the addition of our very own Cracking Good Reads videos. Children are invited to star in their own digital book review, recommending a story for others to read and to be added within our top picks section. Here are a selection of our most recent Cracking Good Reads:
All children at Southill are encouraged to borrow our BookFlix books, the buzz around them is quite infectious and one which we are very proud of.
