After all the excitement of our Book 'World Cup', the children are really enjoying listening to the story of August Pullman in 'Wonder' by RJ Palacio. They are also enjoying their own books during independent reading time each day, which they recently chose from our very own class library, pictured below. The children are already starting to recommend books to each other and it's great to see them enjoy reading time so much. We also thought it would be amazing if we could have some book recommendations from the authors themselves. We've sent messages to authors of books we are currently reading, via Twitter. We have had lots of replies already and are hoping to receive many more! Not only have they provided the children with recommendations, they've also revealed top secret information about characters, plot and even brand new books that are still being written! The children will also be very excited about writing questions for their favourite authors. We'd like to say a huge THANK YOU to the authors below who have sent us these lovely messages! Happy reading, Year 6!
