A SCHOOLGIRL from Welwyn has picked up an award for sharing her “marvellous thoughts and observations” on books she read.
Eleanor Connery-Needham, a pupil at St Mary’s School, won the ‘Most Interesting Written Responses to Books Read’ gong in the east of England’s Read For My School awards.
The 11-year-old had to read a book and then answer several questions about it for an online log.
The Read for My School competition challenged primary school children to read as many books as they could from eight categories and log their progress.
After choosing Eleanor as the winner, one of the judges said: “I adored reading her marvellous thoughts and observations.
