Group status: reading, reviewing, and discussing!



Our group likes to meet on a Monday after school and a Tuesday tutor time. We talk about the things we like about the books and we will decide our favourite. We like to write reviews about the books to show others what we thought of them. The Carnegie shadowing is really good because of the books and discussions.
