Whitley Abbey Community School
Group status: we're sleeping
This is our fourth year of shadowing the Carnegie Medal and the for the second time we have some pupils shadowing the Kate Greenaway Medal. A group of around 20 pupils from Years 7 and 8 meet every Wednesday during PSHE Period 6 in the Learning Resource Centre with Mrs Meechan(LRC Manager), and Mrs Edwards and Mrs Noble from Learning Support. The Carnegie group reads and discuss the shortlisted books, and write reviews on the website. The Greenaway group are comparing the different way the books are illustrated, and will be painting sone alternative covers. They will also be reading the books to pupils in local primary schools. At the end of the shadowing we are having a 'voting' party to vote for our favourite book.
