06 Jun Carnegie Shadowing 2019
The CILIP Carnegie and Kate Greenaway Medals are the UK’s oldest and most prestigious children’s book awards, recognising outstanding writing and illustration in books for children and young people.
The CILIP Carnegie Medal is awarded every year by children’s librarians for an outstanding book written in English for children and young people.
This year a group of our students in years 7 and 8 have been shadowing the awards by reading and discussing the shortlisted titles.
Together with a group of students from the Spires College we are creating presentations on five of our favourite shortlisted books. These titles are:
- Things a Bright Girl can do by Sally Nicholls
- Rebound by Kwame Alexander
- Bone Talk by Candy Gourlay
- Long Way Down by Jason Reynolds
- The House with Chicken Legs by Sophie Anderson
We will be giving these presentations to the Book Group at Waterstones in Torquay. It has been wonderful to watch the students collaborating on this shadowing project! More reports to follow – can we successfully pick the winner?
