Durham High School
Durham City,
Group status: After a week of school exams Year 7 had an afternoon of Greenaway judging. Working in four teams, they reviewed, debated and then chose a winner to add to our own 'reading barometer'

Greenaway Afternoon

Our four judging teams had difficult decisions to make. Each team chose a different winner, they were: 'Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone', 'Animals of the North', 'Tidy', 'A Tribe of Kids'. We rounded off our afternoon with ice lollies, individual votes and our own 'reading' version of 'Who Wants to be a Millionaire?' And our overall winner was... The beautiful 'Animals of the North', good luck to Dieter Braun.
