Today the Page Turner’s decided to ‘take a break’ from their heated discussions about Michael Morpurgo’s stories and celebrate the Queen’s 90th Birthday instead. They coloured in and made bunting.
Several of the Page Turners have not read any Michael Morpurgo books before and are really enjoying them. So much so that they are asking others to hurry up so that they can borrow the book that they are reading.
If you would like to try reading one of Michael Morpurgo’s many books we have lots in the school library – see Miss Whiteley.

Over the last few weeks The Page Turners have been reading various books by author Michael Morpurgo and have been thoroughly enjoying what they have been reading. Many of the group have decided to write letters to the author telling him how much they are enjoying his stories and asking him lots of questions about his characters, where he gets his inspiration from and about writing in general.
Once everyone has finished writing their letters Miss Whiteley will post them and hopefully in a few weeks we may even hear back from Michael.
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……
