This week the Page Turners met and discussed their thoughts on the manuscript that they are proofreading, Going Batty by John Agard.
Cezara, Isha and Zelan think it is a good read so far and have given it a rating of 7 1/2 out of 10 although this may change by the time they finish the book.
Coni and Abi were delighted to find a mistake today, one of the chapter’s was named differently on the contents page to that of start of the chapter.
I wonder if anyone will find anymore mistakes……
Check out the Page Turners Display Board next to the library.
This will be added to over the next few weeks as they continue editing John Agard’s book, Going Batty.
Have you ever wanted to be an editor?
Well, the Page Turners are trying the job out this term. They are proof reading a manuscript of a book, Going Batty by John Agard, which will be eventually published. The scheme that they are taking part in is called Young Editors. The Page Turners have been given the job of reading the manuscript, correcting any spelling mistakes, making comments, suggesting where to insert a picture (can submit artwork) and score each chapter and then the book as a whole out of 10.
Fancy having a go yourself? Come along, we meet in the Library on Thursdays at 12pm.
At today’s meeting the Page Turners decided that the next author that they are going to read is Enid Blyton. Charlotte and Harneeka are big fans and have read numerous books. Some of the Page Turners had read a book/s or had heard of Enid Blyton while a few had never heard of her before!
Over the next month or so until the group start shadowing the Kate Greenaway Medal we will be reading Enid Blyton books, reviewing and discussing them.
Today we have been reading The suitcase kid by Jacqueline Wilson .It is about a girl called Andy (Andrea) and her parents split up so she spends 1 week at her mum’s house and one week at her Dad’s . Easy as ABC 123 right ? Think again. All Andy wants is to live at mulberry cottage with her mum and Dad like a happy family.
We have been making bookmarks with 1D on them take a look!
We have been reading the suitcase kid its brilliant we give it 5 out of 5.
A quick reminder Dahlicious day tomorrow (Friday) remember a pound to dress up come back tomorrow to see what we have been dressing up as(at the library.) Make sure to dress up as your favourite Roald Dahl character.
Over the past few weeks the Page Turners have been reading all things Roald Dahl. We talked about some of the books that we had read and George’s Marvellous Medicine and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory were the most popular with The Witches, James and Giant Peach and the Enormous Crocodile favoured next.
