We have had a fantastic day celebrating books and reading. This morning some children from year 6 came to read with us, we loved sharing books and taking turns to read. It was fun to listen to the older children telling the stories, they made them really exciting by using expression and changing their voices.
After break we turned detective to create wanted posters for a suspicious thief who had been filmed taking books from our library, we really stretched our vocabulary to think of some amazing adjectives (mysterious, creeping, strange, sinister). Here are the posters that Clara and Sophia made.
This afternoon we wrote reviews of our favourite books, there were some great choices. We had to say who our favourite character was, give the title and author, recommend the book to others and give a short summary. Igor chose Harry Potter and Kayla chose Owl Babies.
Which book would you recommend?
We looked amazing in our costumes and could talk about why we had chosen to come as those characters.
