It all begins again!
We're very excited to be beginning this year's Shadowing groups. Year 8 and 9 Book Club met at lunchtime today, and we had a lively talk about the merits of Blood Family. Year 7 Reading Club have spent their time today posting reviews, telling each other about what they have been reading, drawing Manga, and reading Carnegie books. What a great way to end the school day!

This week -reviews!
My Name is Mina is a fantsatic book about a shy young girl who is called weird and crazy and is even taken to a mental home! In my opinion, she is an incredibly open person with a strong passion for writing and birds, in particular skylarks. It makes me eager to read Skellig.[Dina] I read 'My sister lives on the mantelpiece.' It has a very sad story. Jamie's sister, Rose, was killed in a terrorist attack and his mum has gone off with another man. His Dad drinks, and at his new school he befriends a Muslim, Sunya. If his Dad found out, he would be in deep trouble, because Muslims killed Rose. Will he find out? Read and vote! [Amelia]
