Norwich,
Group status: Reading and discussing



Norwich School Upper Fourth Form (Year 8) are once again shadowing the Carnegie. A total of 99 readers. We will conclude the Carnegie season with a discussion forum on Friday 15th June. The group will discuss the books and then vote for our winner. There is a real buzz around reading at Norwich School... It is not just our English teachers who are involved, but teachers across the school read and participate in the final discussion forum.
