Over the past few weeks we have set up a book recommendation wall and a display to keep track of all the books we have read during the year. We are encouraged by Miss Guthrie to share a little bit about what we have been reading, because other members of our class might enjoy reading the text too.
Every week we go up to the library and we have a recording system so that we can borrow books to read from school and from each other.
During Guided Reading, we have been looking at non-fiction books. One is called ‘How to Persuade People’ and we have been using this to look closely at persuasive language and techniques. We have also been learning how to take effective notes and have been practising our note-taking skills using books and video footage.
In Shared Reading, we have been reading a book with Mrs Savoury called ‘Friend or Foe’ by Michael Morpurgo. It is about two boys who get evacuated from London because of a war.
“I really like Friend or Foe because it is very adventurous and I like those kind of books. I also love going up to the library to get comfortable and read a nice book.” – Esmee
“I love reading in the mornings and when we go to the library. I love when I read an adventurous book because it takes me in and makes me excited to see what happens next.”– Evie
“I like reading because it’s when I feel most happy when I read. Friend or Foe can get really dramatic at times, where it makes you want to keep reading it to find what happens next.” – Lilith
