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


Year 1:

The Great Fire of London

"I would give the book a 4/5. I liked the part when the people escaped on the boats on the River Thames" - Betty


Year 2:

Fox Friend

"What I liked about the book is that the girl looked after the fox and the fox got to explore the world" - Alison


"I rate the book 5/5 stars. It’s very good and one of the main character (Paddington) is a very adventurous bear" - Sophie


Year 3:

Billionaire Boy

"I would rate this book 10/10 because it is really funny and I look forward to class read time. I hope that Joe and Bob become friends again at the end" - Emelia


Year 4:


"I really liked the part when she discovered her powers and when Mrs Trunchbull fainted because it was really funny. I also liked it when she had a newt in her water. My favourite part was when Miss Honey adopted Matilda – it was a nice ending. I would give this book 5/5!" - Aarya


Earth-shattering Earthquakes

"The part I liked best was about the ‘Earthquake Experts’. This is because they will be able to warn us if an earthquake is about to happen. I would rate this book a 5/5" - Summer-Rose


Year 5:

Demon Dentist

"I enjoyed hearing about the dentist tricking the children. I also enjoyed the funny names including Gabs and Texting Boy" - Lois


Year 6:

Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone

"I liked the book because it was a bit mysterious. I like the different personalities of the characters, but my favourite has got to be Hermione Granger because I love her character in general. I would definitely recommend it as it’s certainly unique" - Phoebe
