Group status: we're active



There are eight Greenaway Shadowers in our group 2 boys and 6 girls. They vary in age. The group consists of: a boy and a girl from year 2, one girl from year 3, a boy and a girl from year 4 and three girls from year 5. We have voted! We took almost an hour discussing our favourite books and then we voted by secret ballot. 'Tidy' was the winner with 4votes; 'Thet Marvels' came second with 3 votes and 'Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone' was third with 1 vote. We do hope that the professional judges agree with our choice when they announce the 2017 Greenaway Medal Winner later today.
