Hello and welcome to our English page, I am Mrs Lennox English Co-ordinator and this year we are going to spend time on Reading for Comprehension throughout school. We are also going to launch a book exchange for pupils using our outdoor classroom. We are hoping that later in the year parents may also want to be involved in a book exchange.
During Autumn Term the Y4, 5 & 6 Book Club have read Varjak Paw by S. F. Said. They were entertained by this story of a house cat who finds himself in the wild where he learns to stick up for himself and his friends, mastering his own special style of martial arts in the process! Our readers have enjoyed acting out key scenes from the book and have been particularly intrigued by the quirky style of illustrator Dave McKean. While listening to each other reading the story, they have been noting down interesting new vocabulary and trying to recreate some of the illustrations. What will they read next?
N.B. Our Book swap is open in the entrance hall for adults.
