Group status: Meeting
We hold a meeting on Wednesday lunchtime, in the library. There are over 20 people at each meeting, including 4 members of staff. Everyone gets time to say what they are reading and their views on the book, and then we have a general discussion about other people's feelings about that book, before moving on to the next title. We also have some time for people to log onto the website to post a review or read reviews from other schools.
