Wallace Primary School winners of UKLA's Our Class Loves This Book award

P3 pupils from Wallace Primary School win award based on their work on "Pugs of the Frozen North" by Philip Reeve and Sarah McIntyre.

It will be displayed at the UK Literacy Association's International Conference in Cardiff in Bristol on Friday 6 to Sunday 8 July 2019.

Lynn Stuart and Heather Sanderson who teach P3 at the school are delighted that their pupils won the UKLA award and hope that the authors will be able to visit the school and meet the children who love their books.

Roger McDonald , chair of judges, said: "The panel had a very difficult job in selecting an overall winner from the high quality of entries we received.

"We particularly enjoyed the way that Lynn Stuart and Heather Sanderson had enthused their class with Philip Reeve and Sarah McIntyre's hilarious book culminating in a most wonderful Pug Fest!

"The entry included a video showing the class engaged in a range of creative activities which afforded opportunities for the children to immerse themselves in the text.

"The submission showed how the text had been used across the curriculum and also included a visit from some Pug breeders".
