World Book Day
For World Book Day some students have been writing reviews for books that they have read recently. These have been placed around the school and hopefully these lively and colourful displays will encourage other students to read the books! Year 7 students have also brought in books from home which they have enjoyed. These have been shared with the class and some borrowing of books has taken place! Joel Palmer is very happy that Mrs Hyde’s one copy of Percy Jackson is now available for him to borrow! All students received their book token, which can be exchanged for a free book!
‘Unbelievable’ by Paul Jennings
This book is packed full of short stories that can be funny, strange, and unbelievable! Perfect for readers from 8-12 years old. As usual Paul Jennings adds fantastic twists at the end of the stories. I would definitely recommend this book.

‘Unbelievable’ – Paul Jennings
This is a book of short stories, all with an interesting twist at the end. My favourite is ‘Pink Boutique’. It is a sort of flashback with age changing! I liked the book because you never know what is going to happen next! I suggest you read it for yourself.

‘The Day of the Triffids’ by John Wyndham
This book is a Sci-Fi adventure story about the survival of a group of people after a meteor storm. The storm has blinded everyone in the world who watched it. Triffids break free and start to devour people! Will the human beings win their fight for survival???

‘Once’ by Morris Gleitzman
Once is a very interesting book about a Polish Jewish child in the Second World War. The different thing about this book is that the child doesn’t know that the Nazis are killing the Jews, so it is his take on what is going on. The best way to enjoy this book is to know a little about the history. Be prepared to get the tissues out! Ericka Heron Form 8
Once by Morris Gleitzman
When I read this book, I thought it was interesting and fascinating. It was extremely hard to put down because events were constantly happening. It is about the sad life of a Jewish boy in the Second World War. I learnt a few things about the war. I would definitely read this again!

‘The Dare Game’ – Jacqueline Wilson
The Dare Game is a good book about a girl called Tracy Beaker. She thinks she is going to live happily ever after with her foster mother, but it doesn’t turn out like that! Tracy meets friends who play dare games and this is where the story begins…I really enjoyed this book and would recommend it.
Siontai Gordon – Form 8
‘Diary of a Wimpy Kid’ by Jeff Kinney
This book is written by Jeff Kinney and is perfect for children, full of different adventures and whacky cartoons. Greg is always getting into trouble with his friend Rowley, while his little brother gets attention from their parents. It is simply unputdownable! Why not read his other books?
Saschca Lewis – Form 8a
‘I know what you did last Wednesday!’ By Anthony Horrowitz
The story is about two detectives who are brothers. They are the worst detectives in the world! They are called Nick and Tim Diamond. I like the book because it makes you feel like you are there with them all the way through the adventure story.

‘How to Train your Dragon’ by Cressida Cowell
This is a book about a young Viking boy whose dad is leader of the tribe. For Hiccup, the young boy to get his dragon, he must first go on a dangerous adventure. He doesn’t exactly get the dragon he was expecting!! I think this book is a great story for people who like adventures or funny names!
