Cape Cornwall School
Group status: we're sleeping
We are a small (but growing) Reading for Pleasure Group, consisting of children from years 5-8, both from local primary schools and from Cape itself.
Reading for pleasure is really taking off here - in 2004, we sent Year 7 and 8 teams to the Kids' Lit Quiz; they had such a great time that they started their own Mini version for children in Years 4-6, which they are running with great success.
From this came the idea of a group which meets fortnightly, and aims to read a wide range of books (and eat a vast number of biscuits!)We share our favourite authors with each other, and it is proving an excellent way of discovering new titles.
2006 is our first time shadowing Carnegie, and I think we have all enjoyed it, although some of the books have proved to be a challenge.
