Taverham High School

It's a Tie!
A quick vote today has created a dilemma - in joint first place was More Than This with Apple and Rain, joint second place was Buffalo Soldier and Tinder. Although, some people are pushing through to Monday to finish their last book, so it could yet change. There is nothing like a tight finish at the post to keep you on tenderhooks! Looking forward to meeting up with our friends at Reepham High and Thorpe St Andrew High on Monday :)

Gruesome, but in a good way...
Our biggest shadowing group met at lunchtime (thanks Emma for the delicious Victoria sandwich oozing jam mmmm) and the book that created the most passion with thoughts for a winner was (tdah!) Tinder. Georgia told us it is 'gruesome - but in a good way' and Abbey revealed the amazing illustrations to support this. Cuckoo song was also in the running, but not so many of us had completed that book yet. A few of us were up for writing our own poems choosing one of the themes in Apple and Rain, with Hannah already inspired to write one on Solitude.

No idea..
In this week's meeting we discussed "When The Dog Bites' and 'More Than This'. Both stories are cleverly written and left some students with many questions. Whilst discussing, we shared carrot cake and apple and cinnamon cake, which were both delicious! We are still undecided on who will be this year's winner.

So Far...
So far in the Carnegie short list there has been some promising story's like 'When The Dog Bites' and 'Apple and Rain'. These books have already struck the hearts of students at Taverham High School. Mrs Glasel's chocolate cake was one of the most scrumptious cakes you should ever taste!

Almost there ...
This year's shortlist is creating quite a stir - and polarising opinions. Lots of debate Lots of ideas Terrific!

Never ignore a possibility...
No lemon drizzle but fruit scones and chocolate cake were devoured instead! Our returning shadowers' soon put the newbies at ease with their confidence in giving very individual points of view. We can sometimes get quite raucous but it has brought about lots of grins at the passionate discussions thrown around the table. Topics are currently nature v nurture, can we learn something new (to us) from the historical stories and, of course, to never ignore a possibility. You never know where it might lead!
