    I hope you enjoy this one Tudor Court. This edition is the perfect pocket size companion to a day out in the country. Find some swans and let your imaginations soar.
  • Coming to England

    Hello from Giffards Primary! We have really enjoyed reading Coming to England and have just been creating our artwork for the mini challenge. We found so many quotes that summed up Floella’s journey, it was hard to pick!

    This wasn’t the type of book any of us had read before and it has encouraged us to try more biographies and autobiographies in the future.

    Hello Giffards Primary. Lovely to hear from you. Being a Gladiator means you are learning to be adventurous readers and take some risks with your reading. Thank you letting us know that you might try some more biographies. The Small People series is good.

    This is such a good idea for making Reading Gladiators work for the benefit of all children across the school. Thank you for sharing.
  • Getting ready!

    Here at Downham year 4 reading gladiators… we’re getting super excited to read our new books. We’ve swooned at the front covers, flicked through the pristine pages and wondered at what stories and new adventures await us next week when we start our club. We can’t wait to see what everyone else thinks and for another amazing year of reading glads!
