Group status: We meet on a Tuesday after school and after we've devoured the Party Rings and Jaffa Cakes (usually 30 seconds) we get down to the real business of talking about the books on this years list

Our shadowing group this year(2017) is made up of a group of pupils from yrs 9 and 10 who choose to do this as an extra curricular afterschool activity. So, you can appreciate they are really keen readers and we are already having some lively debates about the books we have read so far. The group is lead by myself (School Librarian)The entire group would love to attend the awards ceremony, but failing this we always hold our own awards ceremony. We very rarely agree with the Judges choice!

This is a reference work that details the life and thoughts of Knights: their education and training; the stories they heard and read; the captains they followed and the men they led; but most importantly the complex chivalrous code they were sworn to.
