Shadowers' Choice
Roll up, roll up! Come and vote for the book you think should win TODAY (Monday) so our voice can be heard in the Shadowers' Choice. For the first time the judges have given us the chance to make our feelings known, so use your vote and choose the book YOU liked best. (We'll have another in-house vote on Awards Day so if you change your mind there'll still be time to pin your colours to the mast).

Not long to go now ...
Don't forget to bring your lunch and come for a natter THIS lunchtime.There's only a couple more weeks of shadowing before the big finale and then what are we going to do (once the party's over)? Bring back Brian! We'll have to see if we can carry on using this website for Brian.Hmmm - I wonder ... (I've been told I overuse ellipses, but they are such good fun and it is good to end on a cliffhanger...) Who ever said you can over use ellipses is wrong! ......

Spilling the beans
All right - I'm going to let it out now. At this Friday's end-of-term meeting we are going to be joined by Berlie Doherty, a well-known author who has won the Carnegie medal twice in previous years. She's coming in at lunchtime and we can have a good informal natter over our sandwiches. We have some of her books in the library, including her two medal-winning titles, so come in and have a look before Friday, and be thinking of some good questions to ask her while she's here. She's promised to polish up her medals and bring them with her!

Competitions
Have a look on the ClearVision website for details of the tactile books competition ... http://www.clearvisionproject.org/News/index.php?post_id=12&title=typhlo-and-tactus-competition-2019:-could-you-design-a-book Or look on the shadowing groups tab for details of other competitions (design a certificate/write a diary entry) as discussed over lunch today. Go on - have a go! But watch out for the closing dates, some of which are sooner than you realise.

Carpet update
Crumby. Hoovering day again.
Posted on: 10 May 2019



disappointed?
Well, yes, Francis was disappointed because the gannets got to the oreo thins before he did and there were none left. Somebody must've helped themselves to more than one. Greedy. Never mind - we had fun watching author videos and Francis did get a fruity chew or two instead, so all was not lost. Note to self: buy biscuits in bulk when dealing with voracious teenagers.

Today's biscuits are ...
... I'm not telling. You'll have to come and find out for yourself. I don't think you'll be disappointed though.

Friday good for any of you?

Filmstars
Thanks for sparing the carpet the worst of your tuna sarnies yesterday. Things were a bit crumby at the end of lunchtime, but your aim seems to be improving generally. Keep working on it. Some good ideas for who would play the characters in your film-of-the-book fantasies. I've chucked some photos onto the lists so come and have a look who we came up with - and add some more if the inspiration strikes.

Wednesday it is.
OK so it's Wednesday tomorrow so it's time we had another meeting. I propose we go, Cluedo-style, for All Borrowers, In the library, With a grab bag. Lunchtime. Be there.

We're back!
So that's got the Easter hols out of the way, and it was good to find a pile of gleaming reviews waiting to be added to our page. There are some belters there, but I really liked the questioning one, which I have made Star Review for the time being. Read it and see what you think, and then read all the others because they are all interesting and well considered. Not sure when we should meet next because I'm not here this Friday (I've got Other Things To Do - ask me ...). How does Wednesday lunchtime suit anyone?
