Pakefield Chatterbooks
Group status: This is the New 2018 Carnegie shadowing group.

Our new Carnegie and Greenaway Shadowing Crew also with some amazing teachers

We are Pakefield Chatterbooks! We are a fantastic team who analyses the books in lots of depth and always tries to nail down the book which should be the ultimate winner of the year and our school! As well as the awesome students on the team we also have a brilliant range of English teachers. As a team we work together perfectly even if we disagree with views of some books put forward. But we do come to a overall decision and at the end we always make sure we agree with what the views are! Our team is always desperate to get our hands on the next book even if they are not our sort of style, some of the books in the shortlist has helped some of the teachers and students to widen their range of styles. Our group come together for meetings in our school library often and chat about what we need to judge the books on and a general chat on the great books which have been put on the shortlist. Our group have also been using our knowledge, looking at authors online and in our library to see if they have any more books as we have been very impressed! Our group also loves to review the books online and we always get a willing student to manage the Pakefield Chatterbooks website.We love Carnegie!
