Marjon Shadows

2018 another successful shadowing session
Thanks to everyone who attended today's session and how interesting it turned out to be! Favourites to be used in the classroom were "A First Book of Animals" and "Under the Same Sky". One shadower felt that their favourite to keep on their own bookshelf was "Thornhill". We were also pleased that Julia Hales from the Plymouth Schools Library Service could join us and give us an insight into the awards as well as her thoughts on the shortlisted titles. We wish her every success in 2020 when she takes on the role of chairperson for the awards.

You came, you saw and you commented
Thank you for everybody who managed to find the time to come and look at all the wonderful short listed titles for the Greenaway award 2017. Harry Potter was a firm favourite but most of our trainee teachers said that the books that they would use in class were The Journey and Tidy. Wild Animals of the North was also highly praised.

The final book has arrived and it's brilliant. Thanks to Amy and Charlotte for starting off this year's shadowing yesterday and I can't wait for Tuesday so we can continue shadowing.

Instantly recognisable! Oliver Jeffers literally 'draws' you in with his much loved illustrations.
A perfect edition to every KS1 classroom...Oliver Jeffers has created an amusing page-turner that will engage, encourage and aid children in their learning of the alphabet. It could easily be used alongside any phonics programme; in any school, to reinforce the learning of both phonemes and graphemes. It is definitely on my list of books to buy this year!

We came, we read, we commented!
Thanks to everyone who attended our first meeting. The books were all great and the comments/critical analysis fascinating. How can the judges even begin to choose a winner? "This is not my hat" was popular, as was "Where my wellies take me" and "The day the crayons quit".
