The CILIP Carnegie Medal is awarded annually to the writer of an outstanding book for children.
Each year CILIP invites reading groups in libraries, school, homes and in fact anywhere there are children, young people and books to register for the shadowing scheme. The shadowing scheme encourages young people to read, enjoy and interact with the books shortlisted for the award.
This year St John’s has decided to set up and register our very own shadowing group. Once chosen, the small group will meet on a fortnightly basis to discuss and review the books from the shortlist. There will also be an opportunity for ‘shadowers’ to share their reviews with other children at St John’s and on our very own website.
If you have a passion for reading, would delight in the opportunity to read a fantastic selection of books and talk about them within a group of KS2 children then please complete and return your application form to Miss Lang by Friday 21st March.
