The Caludon Book Busters in their regular meeting place - Caludon Castle School & Community Library

We are an enthusiastic, vibrant and passionate book group called 'The Caludon Book Busters', comprising of Year 7 and Year 10 students. We meet every Monday after school with Miss Barton our librarian to discuss the shortlisted Carnegie books, post reviews, eat biscuits and drink squash. BOOK CLUB! We really enjoy what we do and are ready and waiting when the books come out. We like meeting every Monday, and sometimes even the biscuits don't distract us! COME ON CALUDON!
