Nearly there
It's our final reading group meeting tonight. Next week we're joining up with Aldridge School on results day to share our thoughts. We've enjoyed reading our way through the shortlist. We've discussed what we've read, made posters and book trailers and written some reviews. Can't wait until next week when we find out who's won!

second meeting
We've met for the second time and had an interesting discussion about the books we took home to read over Easter. We then explored the Carnegie website - had a look at what other groups are up to, read some reviews and added some more of our own.

Raring to go
We kicked off our first session by brainstorming all the different factors that influence us when choosing a book to read. We then spent some time looking at the blurbs, covers, opening lines and judges' comments about the shortlisted books. We matched them up and then made a poster displaying the extracts that appealed to us the most. Finally it was time to choose our first titles and we're looking forward to reading them over the Easter break.
