What's a blog?

The books shown below are available for YOU to borrow and read!

We would also love you to write a blog about your book so it can be published here on our Beckstone Book Blog.

A blog is a short piece of writing which tells other people what you thought about the book.

You might answer some of these questions in your blog:

What was the book about?

What did you like about it? Was it funny? moving? exciting?

What didn't you like about it? Were there boring bits or brilliant bits or both?

What did the book remind you of or make you think about?

How many stars would you give it?


How do I write a blog?

Writing a blog is easy! Just follow these simple steps:

  • Find a book you like from the Lending Libraries around school
  • Sign it out.
  • Read it.
  • Let us know what you think in a hand written or typed book blog.


You can:

  • Send it by email to
  • Write it on paper and give it to Mrs Yoxall or Mr Warbrick.
    There are book blog writing frames outside Mrs Yoxall's office.
  • Spend a minute or two with Mrs Yoxall, telling her about the book
     and you can type a blog together.
