Evie – Year 6

Recently I have read two books. I really hope that people like these books as much as me. I read the follow on from a good girls guide to murder ( by Hollie Jackson ) called good girl bad blood. I also read Girl missing by Sophie McKenzie. I realy loved both books and I would recommend reading them to people aged 9 and up because they’re pretty violent and a bit scary.

Holiday Reading by Miss Williams

Welcome back everyone. I wanted to post about the wonderful books I have read in the holiday and to let you know how excited I am about World Book Day next week! Unfortunately, we can’t be together for it for this year but please do look out for some interesting activities planned for next week.

The first book I read last week was Attack of the Heebie Jeebies. I read this expecting it to be a scary book but actually it turned out to be quite a heart-warming story of a girl struggling with her emotions. It was also a great adventure story! It was a nice, quick read with some beautiful illustrations which I recommend for Year 3/4 children.

I am a big fan of Tom Percival (Do you remember The See Saw from story assembly?) so I was very excited to see he has a new book out: The Invisible. This was a wonderful story about the impact one person’s kindness can have on other people’s lives. I would highly recommend this to all ages because I think we have all felt a little invisible at times!

I also finally got around to reading A Kid in my Class by Rachel Rooney which has been on my bookshelf for over a year! This is an anthology of poems based around all the different children in one class. I was so glad to read it as it really did make me laugh! I think we have a few similar children in all our classes. It also reminded me of some of the children I went to school with. It was a really enjoyable collection of poems with a few stand out ones which I particularly loved.

I have read lots of others which I will post about again soon. Please let me know what you have been reading recently – I’m always looking for recommendations 🙂

Evie – Year 6

I recently read and enjoyed three books. The first, was a monster calls by Patrick Ness. I really enjoyed this sad book It was about a 13 year old boy called Conor and his ill mum where a monster comes seeking the truth. The second, was the book the last black cat by Eugene Triviazas. This book was about people killing black cats because they had become convinced they were unlucky and how it was just a scheme made by people to gain money. The last was a book called A good girl’s guide to murder about how a girl investigates a murder that happened five years ago but the person who the police said did it is dead and the real killer is still alive… I really enjoyed these books and I hope other people like them as much as I do.

Since October we have been using Amazon kids plus also known as fire for kids. It is a phone/tablet app and it is also the kids corner on kindle devices. This subscription includes loads of free (or rather subscription included) games, shows but most importantly BOOKS!!! It has loads of parent control features too. Demi is currently only using the kindle device version which is just books, set to the age range 9-11.

The girl who could not dream by Sarah Beth Durst.
I really enjoyed this book. It is a really good adventure. I really wanted to never put my kindle down. I really liked the main character Sophie and I really want my own monster he is really funny. I definitely recommend this book.

Project Z (3 book series) by Tommy Greenwald.
I really enjoyed this series. It’s the first ever zombie books I have ever read in my life. It wasn’t scary at all totally kids safe and enjoyable. It’s really funny. I would totally recommend this series.

Evie – Year 5 – First Class Murder

First Class Murder by Robin Stevens

This is the third book in the series and I am enjoying reading her books A LOT! My Dad has just bought me the fourth book which I will be starting later today.

It is about a murder which takes place on the Orient Express. The story was very surprising and the murderer was only found out near the end of the book. I would recommend this book to children my age.

These books even have a glossary at the end to help you understand certain words in the story because it is set a long time ago and the language can a little old fashioned.
