Group status: Brilliant shadowing season and second in the Federation Quiz.

The Rodborough Readers 2018

We are keen readers from years 7, 8 and 9. Some of us have shadowed the Carnegie Medal before and some of us are very new to the process. We will be taking part in an inter school quiz in June for the Federation Literature Cup. The quiz is based on the Carnegie short listed books that the four schools in our federation have been reading. We are all keen to take part.
