Carnegie and Greenaway boards
Had our eleventh meeting and creating celebratory boards to display the winners. The group decided that Wolf Hollow should have won, by one vote. The Bone Sparrow closely followed, but we thought that they were both amazing. 2 people voted for the Bone Sparrow and 3 votes for Wolf Hollow.

Carnegie Awards Day
On Monday 19th June, we met up with Cambourne Village College and voted and discussed the nominated our winners for the awards. We watched the live streaming and were slightly surprised by the Carnegie and Greenaway winners. We thought that Beck and Marvels were very good, but they didn't win anything. We all agreed with the Amnesty commendations. We really enjoyed the day and would like to do it again next year.

Arguing about Harry Potter!
Had our ninth meeting. Writing book reviews and eating flapjack. Arguing about Harry Potter too because some of us don't want to know what happens in the last book at the end. Some of us are still reading some of the Carnegie books. We were reading the Carnegie judging criteria.

Had our sixth meeting today and read the illustrated version of Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone. Overall, we think that all the illustrations are amazing but we don't really like the look of the sorting hat, and it looks too floral and colourful. In the film, it is plain black. Throughout the meeting, Faith couldn't stop laughing! We had no idea why, and it was a bit strange! We had to bribe her with a lolly to stop her from giggling.

Step Back in Time
We had our fifth meeting and, while eating lollies, we read some our favourite picture books from when we were little (all Greenaway winners). We all really liked Charlie and Lola - I will not ever never eat a tomato. We all also like Mr Magnolia because it was funny, and at the end, he has two non-matching boots. We also like This is not my Hat. Vote in our poll to tell us your favourites. More to follow...

Verdict So Far...
Had three meetings so far and have read some of our books over the holidays and have decided which ones we have liked the best. We think we like
The Smell of Other People's Houses the most and second, Wolf Hollow and then The Bone Sparrow. We think that Sputnik is totally weird!
We have rated them out of ten and The Smell of Other People's Houses leads with 9/10, Wolf Hollow with 7.5/10, then The Bone Sparrow with 7/10, and Sputnik with 4/10. We are looking forward to next week's meeting and deciding our new favourites. More to follow...
