St Clement Danes School
Group status: Some read for knowledge. We read for pleasure and review by being brutally honest!
A serious, dedicated reading group... or not!
Our little 'reading family' consists of passionate readers from Years 7 to 9. We meet every Thursday lunchtime to share excited reflections on what we have been reading (or grumpy groans, depending)!
Some of us have been loyal members of the Carnegie shadowing group for three years now. We love the fact that it provides us with a space where we can express our opinions on books that we have read, and get ideas of other books to read or authors to 'follow'.
Each year, we celebrate the selection of the winner of the award by visiting a famous library within England. Last year, we visited the Bodleian Library in Oxford, to see their 'Marks of Genius' exhibition, as well as to explore the city itself. Our librarian also sends us on a mission to choose new books for our library, so that we will never run out of exciting stories to read.
