John Hanson Community School
Group status: we're sleeping
Our shadowing group consists of six Year Nine students who are all keen readers. We have kept it to six as this is the first year we have taken part. Over the last few weeks we have met each Friday lunchtime to discuss the nominations which has been helped by drinks and cake! Firm favourites became apparent early on so it was no surprise that the group have nominated The Curious Incident with Private Peaceful coming a very close second. As a result of the exercise I plan to start a Reading Group for older readers (there is already one in place for the younger ones) as the group all agree it's a great idea to be able to discuss and share their thoughts on what they have read. We shall certainly be taking part next year with hopefully a larger group.
