Firstly, thank you to everyone for making such a fantastic effort with your World Book Day costumes - you all looked amazing!
The children shared their favourite books and made some bunting to display in our reading corner to show how much we value reading in our class. The children had to think about their favourite character, write a synopsis of their book and say why they recommend it to others.
We were also challenged to have our story time in another part of the school today. Our chosen story that I’m reading to Year 5 is Wonder by RJ Palacio and so today we read our story on the stairwell as the children listened to how Auggie, the main character, felt about the tour of his new school.
Year 5 also chose their book for the reading challenge for Lent. They will bring this book home and I encourage them to read this one but also try and read one of the others before the last week of term. When they have finished their book, they will get a bonus golden ticket and points for their River Challenge team in addition to the usual reading rewards we have in class. In the last week before we break up, we will share our thoughts about the books and discuss what we liked and disliked about them in our Book club celebration.
