Reading Recommendations

We have now launched our Book Recommendations which will take place in our Friday Celebration Assembly.

Come on children, let's get reading.  Each week in our assembly children will be asked to recommend their favourite books.  With the aim of highlighting to other children which good authors and books are out there to read.

This week Year 5 and 6 launched this new and exciting event.

WILLOW CLASS: I have read "Frozen".  I really liked it and it was just like the film.

 

 ROWAN CLASS : I read "Diary of a Wimpy Kid-Dog Days" by Jeff Kinney.  "Its about a "Wimpy" kid that gets bullied at school. He has plans to get a girlfriend but sadly, he fails".  I really enjoyed this book.  

 

BEECH CLASS :  I read: "Billionaire Boy" by David Walliams.  "It's funny - the characters are rich.  It's a good read".

MAPLE CLASS : I read: "Street Child" by Berlie Doherty.  "Based on a true story about a boy orphaned in Victorian times.  He goes to the workhouse and escapes.  Year 5 & 6 children would love it". 

CHESTNUT CLASS : I read: "Point Blanc" by Anthony Horowitz.  It is part of the series involving the character Alex Rider.

"It is an exciting and adventurous story encouraging me to want to read on.  I have the whole series and can't wait to continue with the series".

 

CHESTNUT CLASS : I read "Ratburger" by David Walliams.  "I would recommend this book to children as it is hilarious and made ma laugh.  My favourite part was when they show you a picture of the two characters that are made into burgers.  I haven't read any other books by this author but have heard that "Mr Stink" is a similar book that will keep you laughing".

ELM CLASS :  We read "Stink and the Galactic Jawbreaker" by Megan Mcdonald.

"The vocabulary that the author used was very emotive and made you want to read on.  Stink is Judy Moody's annoying brother".

ELM CLASS : We read " Judy Mood Around The World in 8 1/2 Days".

 "It was an exciting book, as even though Judy was a girl she had fights and went on adventures.  I would recommend this book for all ages because it is an easy read and I can't wait to read the other books in this series".

WOW - isn't it exciting exchanging recommendations about books !  Mrs Greehill, the Literacy Co-Ordinator commented "To hear children discussing how excited they are about reading is what makes Grange such an exciting and amazing school.  I can't wait to sdee children hunting for these books in the School Library".

Miss Corderoy leads the Friday Celebration Assembly and she has said how much she enjoyed hearing about how hard children were working on their reading and were choosing authors that were modren.  She has been known to read a few of the books recommended above.

P.S.  Why not use the books you have read to complete your reading challenges at home?
