Group status: We meet every other wednesday and have been looking at the books which are competing for the Greenaway Medal.

Our shadowing group this year(2018) is made up of a group of pupils from Year 8 and is lead by myself (School Librarian)The group would love to attend the awards ceremony, but we always hold our own awards ceremony the week before the real thing. It will be interesting to see if we agree with the Judges.We very rarely do!
