Welcome to the 2018-19 Reading Gladiators challenges. Let the reading begin!


  • Debate Debate

    Yesterday we finished reading The Glassmaker’s Daughter. We looked at a range of different statements and we discussed if we agreed or disagreed with them. There was lots of interesting debate.

  • Gloomy vs Smiling

    After we read the story ‘The Glassmakers Daughter’ we looked into mirrors to see how we would look if we were to be grumpy like the glassmakers daughter. Then we smiled into the mirror like the glassmakers daughter did to see how much better we would look 🙂

    What a great idea! I definitely think smiling looks better.

    me too!!! although I wonder what makes is a smile ? does a smile always mean happiness? What made Daniela's smile special?
  • And we are off!!!
