On Thursday 17th March the Yoto Carnegie and Kate Greenaway medal shortlist was announced.
The annual book awards were launched to our Primary and Secondary reading groups and over a period of 12 weeks, both groups are working with Mrs. Dewhurst, Head of Secondary Library, looking at the 8 shortlisted titles.
Pupils who are taking part , also known as ‘shadowers’ as they ‘shadow’ the judging process for the Carnegie and Kate Greenaway Medals; read, discuss and review the books on each shortlist, engage in reading-related activities which they share online, and vote for their favourites to win the Shadowers’ Choice Awards.
Here is a list of the Shortlisted titles:
The event is still ongoing and will run through to June 2022 but updates on how our reading groups have been getting on can be found here:
