High Wycombe,
Group status: We have started to share our thoughts on the books we have read so far and have created a Carnegie tree! We now have let the pupils take out the books and tell us which one they love best and what they recommend to other schools. :)



We are a group of 20 students from Year 7 and 8. Our second Carnegie meeting involved 'speed reading' extracts from the shortlist to choose which titles we would like to read first. Happy reading!
