28 students from Year 7 – 10 arrived for our first Carnegie Shadowing meeting of the year. Some have been coming for years, many are new faces. Everyone eager to see what has been chosen for us to read and to borrow their first title for the Easter Holidays.
The list includes a wide range of fiction titles, all published in the past year. Some face modern issues and situations, others take inspiration from classic folklore or 20th century history. One is written in poetry and another is fully illustrated. All will keep us busy and give us food for thought ready for our debates next term, when we can begin to also get to know one another better.
