Monk's Walk School

First post
Even though this is or first post we have already had 3 meetings. With so many books on the shortlist this time and only 8 weeks to read them all in we are trying our best to meet as often as possible. The discussions are going well and the reviews are starting to pile in.

Two meetings down
Two meetings down and we've got some really strong opinions of the books coming through. Everyone has been really positive about this years list and some of the die-hard carnegies, that have been doing its for the past few years, are glad that this year there is no Gerladine McCaughrean on the list! Sorry Geraldine!!

Day of first meeting
Well amid Ofsted we have our first carnegie meeting this lunchtime. We have already handed out a lot of the books to the students taking part this year with a lot that have already read some of the books on the list through the shadowing of the longlist. There is definately a lot of discussion already about the books so todays meeting should really kick off this years carnegie for us. I am armed with biscuits so am totally prepared for everything!

We have just got the shortlist through and we are already looking forward to discussing the books! A lot of them have already been highly read and some of them have been recommended by the students as possible winners! There will be some usual faces in the group this year and also some new yr7's who have been great in our other reading groups. Fingers crossed for some lively debating!
