Flamsteed's Carnegie Umbras
Group status: We are making shoe-box scenes!

Work in progress!

Here at John Flamsteed our year 7's embarked on a reading mission to read the 8 Carnegie books. Every Friday we meet in the library to discuss, doodle and read the books. It is fun and everyone is friendly and very keen to talk about the book.
