S2 have started to read the Carnegie books
Everyone in the S2 class chose one of the Carnegie finalist books to read. Everyone chose something that appealed to them after they'd read the blurb and watched some of the videos available on the Carnegie website.
They were asked to read the opening chapter/chapters of the books and to think about what appeals to them as readers. I was impressed by how enthusiastic they were about reading books that were stylistically challenging or set in unusual locations, or had unusual central characters.
The class are definitely interested in reading more and creating some interesting videos about the books, which they will upload onto our blog!
