Whole Class Readers
At St Michael and All Angels we are using the Whole Class Reading approach to encourage all children to enjoy books and reading.
Year 2 have enjoyed reading The Adventures of the Wishing Chair by Enid Blyton. They have learnt lots of new vocabulary and loved finding out about the different lands and places Mollie and Peter visited.
Year 5 have heard all about the journey of Edward Tulane. They even had a little Edward Tulane puppet that they dressed up and made stories for.
Wanting to prove to his brothers and sister that magic really exists, Leon volunteers to be in Abdul Kazam's magic show and gets transported to a mysterious world. Filled with rabbits, doves, playing cards and magician's assistants - among other things - if a magician can make it disappear, it will end up in the Place Between!
Year 6 have been reading Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone by JK Rowling. They have written their own ideas for a friendship potion and rules for a game of quidditch. Some children enjoyed it so much that they have continued reading the series at home.
Year 4 have been reading The KrindleKrax by Phillip Ridley.
