BOOK reviewing has entered a new chapter at a Keighley school.

Pupils at Beckfoot Oakbank assessed the merits of various science books as part of a national initiative.

They were taking part in the Royal Society Young People's Book Prize, which aims to inspire young people to read about science.

Groups of under-14s across the UK judge six chosen books, written in the previous year.

The Beckfoot Oakbank judging panel selected A First Book of Animals as its winner.

Fiona Smith-Feather, who supervised the students, said: "The panel really enjoyed reading and discussing the books and we're looking forward to the scheme being launched again next year.

"In school we think it is really important to encourage our students to get involved in extra-curricular activities and feel confident to share their thoughts and opinions with their peers from across the UK."

The overall winner was Home Lab, by Robert Winston.
