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 Autumn Term


Year 1:

Green Eggs and Ham

"It was nice and funny! I wouldn’t want green eggs and ham myself as it sounds disgusting!" - Millie

"It keeps repeating and it was funny" - Felicity


Year 2:


"I really enjoyed reading Paddington Bear because when Paddington went to the airport he kept saying jokes and it was funny. I also liked it when he ruined the painting and went on TV" - Alison

The Swan Princess

"The Swan Princess was really, really good. I’d give it 5 out of 5 stars." - Phoebe


Year 3:


"It was a book full of fun, short stories about Fi-Rex going on adventures. I’d give it 10/10" - Brendon

Charlie and the Great Glass Elevator

"I like the story because the characters go into out of space in the elevator and they can see the Vermicious Knids who try and take over the space hotel" - Lilly


Year 4:

The Suitcase Kid

"I liked it because it was interesting. It was sad and funny at the same time. Andy had a lot of different emotions throughout the story for example she was heartbroken when she lost Radish." - Jaiden


The Butterfly Lion

"It was a good story because a lion made friends with a human and this rarely happens in real life!" - Holly


Year 5:

The Boy Who Grew Dragons

"It’s a very imaginative story and it’s disastrous too! You can’t really grow dragons and the dragon causes chaos which is funny!" - Scarlett

"I really liked the book as it was entertaining and funny. Who doesn’t like a character who poos fireballs?" - Oscar


The Ice Monster

"I really liked the themes in the book for example friendship. Also, I enjoyed the funny parts like when Dotty made noises when she wasn’t meant to." - Kaycee


Year 6:

The Explorer

"I’d give the book 3 ½ stars as it wasn’t my favourite genre of book but I really liked it when the children found a sloth and decided to keep it as a pet!" - Olivia


The Person Controller

"I’d give the book 4 out of 5 stars because it’s a creative story and it’s different to other" - Samuel


The Jam Donut That Ruined My Life

"I’d give The Jam Donut that ruined my life 4 ½ stars out of 5. Overall, I found it really funny. I particularly enjoyed the part where the teacher’s guinea pig got covered in paint and the children shaved his fur to try and disguise the mess they’d made!" - Ava
