Carnegie and Kate Greenaway Children's Book Awards
On a Tuesday afternoon, children from Years 3,4 and 5 meet for Young Writer's Blog with Mrs Murray. We have been inspired by the BBC 500 words writing competition and submitted our own stories, which we hope to hear about soon!
We are now excited to be starting our next project: we are an official shadowing group for the CILIP Carnegie and Kate Greenaway Children's Book Awards.
Every spring, CILIP: The Chartered Institute of Library & Information Professionals, invites reading groups in libraries, schools and homes to get involved with shadowing.
Children and young people 'shadow' the judging process for the CILIP Carnegie and Kate Greenaway Children's Book Awards; they read, discuss and review books on each shortlist selected by CILIP's panel of Librarian judges and engage in reading related activity online.
The scheme has thousands of registered reading groups across the UK and internationally - engaging tens of thousands of children and young people in reading. Reading activity takes place from March to June; from the moment the shortlists are revealed to the final winners announcement. This means that other children at Holmewood can join the group next term and become involved too!
We would love you to take a look at our shadowing page; read our reviews and answer our weekly poll:
If you have any questions, pop along to Mrs Murray's classroom (4CM) or come to find one of the Young Writers.
