This Term, each class will be reading a novel together once a week, in order to improve their literacy skills, to expose them to a wider range of literature and to increase their enjoyment of reading:

Year 5 – ‘Born to Run’ by Michael Morpurgo

Year 6 – ‘You Are Awesome’ by Matthew Syed

Year 7 – ‘A Monster Calls’ by Patrick Ness *

Year 8 – ‘Once’ by Morris Gleitzman

*Please be aware that the Year 7 book has wonderful reviews and is classed as being suited for children aged 9-13 years on Accelerated Reading but it does, however, follow the story of a young boy whose mother is suffering from a terminal illness. If you have a child in Year 7 who you think would be upset by this issue due to personal experience, please do let their Form Tutor know so that we can speak with the child individually beforehand.
