Stanley library
Stanley, Co Durham
Group status: We have read and examined the illustrations in the following books: The Journey, The Wolves of Currumpaw, Tidy, There is a Tribe of Kids and The Marvels.

We are a group of 5 Key Stage 2 children from St Joseph's R C Primary School, Stanley. We are avid readers and have chosen to participate in the Greenaway shadowing exercise once a week, on a Friday at our local library. Our school is currently working towards gaining the UNICEF UK Rights Respecting award. As part of this process we are working on art projects which link to the rights of the child. By participating in the shadowing scheme, we can use the shortlisted picture books to explore human rights issues.
