Carnegie Group Visit Globe Theatre and Waterstones in Piccadilly

On Friday 13th December sixteen Year 8 and Year 9 Carnegie Panel students, who shadowed the Carnegie Medal Competition last year, travelled to London for a guided tour of the Globe Exhibition at the Globe Theatre. The panel then visited the Piccadilly branch of Waterstones store to choose a selection of books for the Learning Resources Centre at St Clement Danes School.  Trip Leader Miss Laporta reported that the students had thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Please see the comments below that the students made following their trip;

“I loved going to Waterstones and picking out new books for the LRC. I also liked reading different books I wouldn’t normally read.”

“I enjoyed going to the club and being able to give my opinion without being judged.”

Year 9 student Rebecca said, “My favourite book was “Long Way Down”. I liked it because it was in the form of a poem. I would recommend Carnegie as it introduces different types of books which you haven’t read before. My favourite part of the trip was a tour around the Globe which was really interesting and captivating. I also really enjoyed going to Waterstones as I saw many books that I had not seen before.”

“At Carnegie I really loved reading “Bone Talk” and “The Land of Never Endings” because they filled my imagination with all sorts of colourful pictures. It was amazing to learn all about the Globe Theatre and hear all the funny things that went on behind the scenes. I have loved Carnegie and would recommend it to everyone.”
