Stanley library
Stanley, Co Durham
Group status: We have examined the illustrations in all of the 7 shortlisted books. We are currently producing art work on "A First Book of Animals" with the assistance of Mrs Gilbert from the White Room art gallery.

We are a group of 6 Key Stage 2 children from St. Joseph's R. C. Primary School, Stanley. We are avid readers and have chosen to participate in the Greenaway shadowing exercise once a week, on a Friday at our local library. Our school is currently working towards gaining the UNICEF UK Rights Respecting award. As part of this process we are working on art projects which link to the rights of the child. By participating in the shadowing scheme, we can use the shortlisted picture books to explore human rights issues.
