Holmewood Shadowers
Tunbridge Wells, Kent

Welcome to our visitors!
This week we have three new members of The Shadowers. Holmewood House have welcomed 19 boys and girls from Fangcao Primary School in Chengdu. We have shared and chatted about our group and what we do, picking out some favorite titles too. We have also begun to build our scrapbooks where we will keep our thoughts and share opinions together over the coming weeks.

We're back!
The Easter holidays are over and we are ready to continue Shadowing! We have a new group with some old faces and lots of new too. At the end of last term, we challenged the school (including staff) to snap themselves 'Reading somewhere strange.' We have had lots of entries and the winners will be announced during Friday's assembly. Is there somewhere peculiar you have read recently? Our focus this week is to introduce our new members to the team and our Group Page. We have also begun to chat about A First Book of Animals by Nicola Davies, illustrated by Petr Horacek. Have a great week!

Ready, Steady, Go!
Our shortlisted books have arrived! We are really excited to be able to get down to the proper business of 'shadowing' now. We presented our group and the Kate Greenaway Medal to the whole school during Friday's assembly, it is really good to see everybody interested in what we are up to. The first book we have chosen to look at is 'King of the Sky' illustrated by Laura Carlin. We look forward to sharing our thoughts and opinions with you.

The weight of the wait.
It is nearly here! The announcement of this year's Greenaway Medal shortlist - it feels as if we have been waiting since the late Middle Ages. We are currently preparing to present our Shadowing group to the school on Friday, and look forward to sharing what we have been up to...

Frozen by the Beast from the East
We are very excited that our selected books from the longslist have arrived and we were really looking forward to sitting down together and sharing them. However the snow has temporarily frozen our plans, so we shall meet next week and make sure we tell you all about it. Meanwhile, please take part in our weekly poll - we will tell you the results next week. Keep warm!
