Year 2 are sharing their love of books following the long summer break. The pupils have returned refreshed and ready to carry out some more reading.
Each class member has started work on a book review. Class teachers Emma and Sally asked the children to choose one of their favourite books. We then set about writing a short review for our friends to read.
Our reviews needed to include factual information such as the title and the author. The children were then asked to write some short sentences explaining who the main characters are and what takes place in the story.
Our final task was to explain why we like this book and to give it a rating out of ten. The reviews were then shared with our friends.
It was interesting to see some of the book choices. Not all pupils chose works of fiction. It was great to see some information books being praised. One young learner in particular was very enthusiastic about a factual book looking at space and the planets.
