There are schools in this group:
February’s Challenge at Hallsville
We were thrilled when we arrived at school on Monday to find we had been sent a box of poetry books for our efforts in February’s challenge. We can’t wait to start borrowing these from our class library so that we can enjoy reading some more poetry at home. Joseph Coelho’s ‘Overheard in a Tower Block’ is already in demand!
Our Gladiator Display
Having fun writing poems!!
RG@St Matthias are having a blast with the poems in the book. They went home and decided to write their own versions. They were quite happy to share them with the class!
Planning the story of the White Stallion.
St Matthias gladiators deep in discussion as they plan and put together their version of the story.
“We thought it was sad and quite an emotional book but we still liked it.” Another group member said that it reminded her of events that are happening around the world in the present time.
St Matthias Recommends
Fans of ‘Pax’
Year 6 reading gladiators @St Matthias loves the book Pax so far… We like the way the story is told through Peter and Pax’s viewpoints. One of our favourite parts is when Vola carves a wooden fox for Peter. This made us feel emotional!
Y6 Reading Gladiators have entered the arena.
Apologies we had a very busy start to the year but are now well and truly heads down! We loved Children of the King. Two different pieces of history interwoven brilliantly well. Bring on the jelly fish!
Hallsville’s Reading Gladiators
We have really enjoyed reading The Children of the King this month and can’t wait to start The Thing About Jellyfish next week. Here are some of our wonderful Reading Gladiators with September’s completed challenge.
We are currently reading The Children of the King and we are loving it!
