The Carnegie Shadow Reading Group


If you are in Year 7 and interested in reading, you are invited to join Ms Burton’s Group.  Supported by Year 12 A Level Literature students, the Group meet in an informal atmosphere to read and discuss books on the short list for the 2016 Award, write reviews, blogs and explore the website.

We enjoy drinks and biscuits but most importantly we love to talk about books that we take pleasure in or inspire us.  We are all avid readings and many students are reading their second or third books after a month and relishing the experience. 

You can follow us via the website, follow the link and search for The North Shadows in the group section.  Please read along with us and let us know your favourite book. The winner will be announced on Monday 20th June 2016.
