As we have done for many years, students have been taking part in the YTF scheme, with a reading group meeting every Wednesday to share books published in 2016. Everyone in the group is now reading the 6 short listed books, and discussing their favourites, while sharing lunch and CAKES!
On Friday 6 students visited the YTF Reading Group at John Taylor High School, to network, discuss the 6 books and make new friends.
“My first impression of John Taylor School was that it was a very nice school like Kingsmead. The Library was a lovely area, and they invited us to sit down and talk about the books on the short list. We paired up with someone new, and learned about each other’s interests and reading preferences. When the students went to class, we were invited to look round their Library. I thought it was a very nice school, and the people were very friendly.” – Jessica B
