Book of the Term

As part of our continuous drive to develop the children’s love of reading, we will be launching, ‘A Book of the Term’. It is hoped that this will engage and enthuse the children as they will be able to read for pleasure and then discuss what they have read with friends. Additionally, children can complete activities (which can be found under the Home Learning section on the school website) that are linked to the book, further developing their comprehension and language skills as they are linked to the National Curriculum objectives for reading. One of the activities that children will be able to complete is a book review for each book, which will then be displayed around school, thus giving children a real sense of writing for purpose. Once they have completed any activities, they can then fetch them to Mrs Elliott.

Our second book is called ‘Bad Dad’.  It is the latest heart-warming and brilliant story by David Walliams.

“Dads come in all sorts of shapes and sizes.

There are fat ones and thin ones, tall ones and short ones.
There are young ones and old ones, clever ones and stupid ones.
There are silly ones and serious ones, loud ones and quiet ones.
Of course, there are good dads, and bad dads . . .

A high-speed cops and robbers adventure with heart and soul about a father and son taking on the villainous Mr Big – and winning!

This riches-to-rags story will have you on the edge of your seat and howling with laughter!”

Should you wish to purchase the book, it can be bought from a number of recognised book shops, including online shopping websites.
