The judges for these unique book awards, now in their 11th year and the only awards judged by active classroom teachers, will enjoy the challenge of reading a diverse range of exciting texts from debut authors and small imprints, as well as from more established authors and publishers, selected for them by an experienced panel of past teacher judges, ex-teachers, librarians and consultants.
Congratulations to our Winners! To launch the first Brenda Eastwood Award for good practice in diversity and inclusion, the panel of judges has agreed to make two awards: one for an individual and one for a school.
The unique UKLA Book Awards are the only awards to be judged entirely by teachers. In their 10th Anniversary year, their choice of winning books which, according to the criteria, can “enhance all aspects of literacy learning” clearly demonstrates that teachers’ judgements are soundly based on pupil response.
UKLA is delighted to announce that the winners are Lynn Stuart and Heather Sanderson and their P3 pupils from Wallace Primary School, Renfrewshire for their work based on ‘Pugs of the Frozen North’ by Philip Reeve and Sarah McIntyre.
