Recommended Reads

Each half-term we have a class reading book which is read to children at the end of the day. At the end of the half-term the children create reviews about the books they have read.


Below are the reviews of the books which have been read in The Spring Term



I would give this book 5 stars because it’s the best. I like it when Little Red Riding Hood first sees the wolf. I love it when the wolf dresses up as grandma. He is my favourite character - Ember ROT

I’d give this book 5 stars because the woodcutter helped Little Red Riding Hood. The granny is my favourite character. I liked it when the wolf dressed up as granny - Willow REB

We would give the book 5/5 stars because it was funny. We liked the wood cutter, Little Red Riding Hood and the wolf. We liked the part when the wolf ran away - RPM


Year 1

I would give this book 5/5 stars because it was very funny - Zaira 1RW

 I would give the book 5 stars because it is a lovely book. I like that there are different friendships. I like that mouse has a new home but there’s lots of cheeky animals hiding. My favourite part of the story was when all of the cheeky animals were found. Miss Gibbs made me laugh when she did the animal noises - Remeh 1SG


Year 2

I would give this book 5 stars because I love everything about Roald Dahl books! I like the part when the medicine turns granny funny. Mr Kranky is my favourite character because he gets really ‘hyped’ about the medicine - Noah 2HS

We’d give the book a full 5/5 stars because we like hedgehogs. We liked the whole story but especially the parts where the hedgehog was funny. We liked the character Max best and it was funny when one of the hedgehogs went dizzy - 2CS


Year 3

I would give this book 5/5 stars because some scenes are really funny. Terry is my favourite character from the story. I really liked it when Terry turned a cat into a flying cat - Eeqan 3NW


Year 4

I would award this book 5/5 stars as it is easy to listen to and it’s funny. My favourite part was when the gran flew out of the racing car! - Sarah 4JC


Year 5

I would give this book 3/5 stars because it wasn’t my type of book. I did like how mischievous the characters are though! - Demi-Leigh 5KG


Year 6

I would rate this book 4.5 out of 5 as it is a hilarious piece of text with lots of amazing jokes. I liked the part where Billy Plimpton and William Blakemore have to work together as they absolutely hate each other. My favourite character is Billy as he starts to realise that it is ok to have a stammer and that he doesn’t need to electrocute himself to be perfect as not everybody is perfect - Olivia 6ES

I would rate the book as 3/5 stars since it is very interesting and it gives a lot of description about the characters. I like the fact that the book tells a good story about Vita’s life and it encouraged me to do more good things in life. Vita is my favourite character in the story as she’s very determined to make everything right and she is a good role model for me - Evie 6LB

I’d award this book with 5 stars because it is a fantasy book based on a tree. I love the book since it’s about three children living next door to a wood. Silky the fairy is my favourite character as she’s so generous and warm hearted - Blesing 6ST
