children who helped judge entries for a major book award gather at Doncaster schools this afternoon to hear the result.

Pupils from Tranmoor, Southfield and Park primaries, and from Danum School Technology College, will join together at Armthorpe School to find out which author has won the Kate Greenaway medal, awarded by children’s librarians.

After weeks of drama workshops, activities, and reviewing the books on the shortlist, the winner will be announced at the school’s performing arts suite.

The children will have a chance to show presentations and be entertained by storyteller Chris Fitt.

A similar event has been organised at Hungerhill School, Edenthorpe, for its feeder primary schools.
