The suitcase kid

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.

Exciting News

The School Library Service have asked if any children would like to read some of the books that have been longlisted for the Leeds Book Awards 2015 and tell them what they think of them.

The Page Turners decided to take up the challenge and may let some children from year 5 and 6 join them.

Our bookmarks have been laminated so we are adding stickers to make them perfect .We are planning to create a book loving boy band with three clone Nialls , a Harry  and a couple of Zayns who love books and sing many songs about books! Unfortunately Louis and Liam never made the band for they were not very popular and so will not make it to enjoy the experience of being in between the pages of our books .

The Page Turners

 Today the Page Turners met for the first time this year.DSCN0479It was a great turnout and everyone was really enthusiastic.

We talked about how we would like the club to work, the sorts of books and authors that we liked and decided which book we would read first.

Also we talked about our display board which is located opposite the library and what our first display could be. It was decided that everyone would have their photo taken with a book that they had enjoyed reading.

Abi volunteered to create the first display.

 

 

 

All things Roald Dahl

Kids on books

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.

Next week we will be getting arty crafty and making our own enormous crocodiles or newts,  Mr Twit beards, designing our medicine for George and his Grandma or going colour crazy and colour in one of the dahlicious colouring sheets.
