UKLA 2016 Shortlisted Titles

Lovereading4schools is pleased to feature the UKLA Book Awards this year. Run by the UK Literacy Association. What makes these awards so unique is that they are the only awards judged entirely by active classroom teachers, who are able to share the books with their classes and genuinely discover what works with young readers.

This year teachers have been selected from schools in Bristol and South West to read the longlisted books, discuss them with their group leaders, and share them with pupils. Then they had the difficult task of choosing their shortlist of six books in each category!
