Fierce debate
Wow, what an afternoon. After some debating and running the book race it was decided that Poet X won our Carnegie Shadowing award. But... deciding the Human Rights / Amnesty Honour was much more fierce, girls discussing and fighting for their favourite book. Many discussions had, various reasoning and great responses. Finally a winner was had... Bone Talk. It was decided that whilst the others were worthy contenders, Bone Talk covered a subject that was less known whereas the others books were on well publicised topics.

Voting tonight
Really looking forward to hearing what the students think of the books they have read. Voting tonight... I wonder which will win? followed by making fima characters and discussing why they voted as they did. Oh and don't forget the delicious cake that we will be eating too!

Last session
We had a really good session yesterday discussing the statement ?Never judge a book by its cover? and looking critically at the covers of the 8 shortlisted Carnegie books and what made them more or less successful. The girls then spent some time designing some alternative book covers.

The girls came up with some great words and phrases pertaining to the books they have read so far when they played the A - Z game .e.g. Ingenious, Zero scores for the Blues and Zany World.

2018 Club
We are well into our weekly get togethers and the Year 9's are enjoying taking a leadership role with the activities. As more books are read so discussions increase and it is interesting to hear the different opinions.

So far...
We have had 3 meetings. Already consumed quite a lot of cake and popcorn. Designed new book covers, written a review each and composed a poem in groups. As there have been at least 2-4 books on average read; this week will see lively discussions on what we think of some of the books.
