First Look At The Books
Bookbratz have had their first session on both Carnegie and Greenaway Books and have the advantage of already being familiar with Goth Girl and More Than This from the DBA shortlists.....so theses are the favoured picks at the moment. Looking forward to working with our feeder Primaries and anticipating lots of debate about the books this year!

Don Valley and Southfield
Whoop de doooo Having fantastic time shadowing the Carnegie and Greenaway medals. Firstly a wonderful day at Don Valley where we made friends with other students looking at the Carnegie books, we can't wait to welcome them here to celebrate the finale! Southfield Primary students had fun too when they were helped by Armthorpe mentors when doing a morning of drama based on the Greenaway books, Just Ducks produced some interesting quacking noises and moves and again we can't wait till next week when we travel to our local library for more fun together!
