On Tuesday 29th, David (insert last name here) will come into our school and the Carnegie Shadowers will be brought into the iBase to do some drama work and other activities which are going to help us introduce each of the books and a bit about each one. The people who did it last year replied with saying that David was a very fun person and we would like to see him again. Hope it goes well. - By Ahrus Asim

Our Carnegie Shadowers have taken out some books from the iBase to read over the 2 week Easter holidays. At least everyone has read one book which is good and now we are going to see who has read the most books. Let's see how well we are doing and who has read the most...

I have decided that as Dixons Trinity Academy we need a few book worms. To work our way through this, I have decided that the Carnegie shadowers (during a meeting) must say how many books they have read. Then the top 5 who have read the most books will be represented as our "Carnegie Shadowing Book Worms". The entire school could have one too but count how many books they have taken out from the ibase and choose 10 instead of 5 so it's fair - By Amy Denton
