Group status: Great first meeting. We're reading!!!
Our team of dedicated and enthusiastic student librarians and library friends have their hands on the shortlisted books.
The shadowing team meets every two weeks over lunchtime in the school library. With a quick change to the furniture a 'special' space is created for an informal get together for students and staff.
Anyone who checks out a Carnegie short listed book is invited to become a member of the shadowing team.There's no pressure to finish books if you just can't get into the story. Fellow readers will give you an insight into any of the books and try to encourage readers to persevere. Readers are encouraged to be open about the pleasure they experience from reading, their feelings about books and reactions to books with their peers.
Our aim is to enhance young people's participation and enjoyment in reading for pleasure.
