Malvern St James MSJ
Group status: Year 9 have finished reading the Carnegie books and have voted and spoken about their favourite book.

One of our three Yr 9 groups reading the Carnegie books in their English lesson

All our Year 9's are shadowing the Awards this year, and our Year 7 Book Club has had a special preview of the Greenaway shortlist. We were also really lucky to have a visit from author Debi Gliori who talked about her nominated book Night Shift. This was a great opportunity for the girls and also was very interesting as this is a picture book that offers an insight into depression that words can rarely describe.
