Let’s start sharing reviews of the books we have been reading.
We’ll use  GREAT BOOKS, the link at the top of the blog and let’s write about books!    At the end of term we can vote on the most interesting reviews and that student will win a prize. A book voucher, of course.


This is an example of a review written by a Year 3 student. She is a keen reader and loves to read and write stories.
