Group status: Today we had a meeting in Mrs Burton's classroom as we touched up on our page and took some books home to read over the weekend. At lunch we made a plan for next week and the group will meet again on Thursday next week.

Taylor Reading Icons 2017

We're a group of quirky readers who love to make each other laugh. Munching on cookies is one of our binding passions espically while reading. Our group includes: Jennifer who loves books especially the Divergent series and when she saw the films it made it more real. She is also the oldest and probably the most sensible in the group. Wojciech a funny and crazy boy. He is so into books of all genres and anime that sometimes forgets to switch back to reality. He always makes everyone smile and is always happy. Blair, a funny, sarcastic boy and has a love for all things aviation. In his spare time he does first aid and hopes to join the medical profession when he's older. He also adores science and is very good at chemistry and biology. Caoimhe is a bright, bubbly and an amazing dancer. Caoimhe favourite genre of book is fantasy, In fact she has read the whole Harry Potter series twice! Casey is a confident, excitable person with a love of musical theatre, reading and most importantly food. When Casey is older she wants to work on Boardway. Amy who is sassy and indecisive she couldn't decide what to put about herself. She loves films, music (she has a soft spot for 80s and country music) and adores reading, she is a part of the Episode, Wattpad and Booktube community's which she spends most of her time doing.
