    Hello Lower Academy Gladiators. You picked up lots of interesting points in your discussion. What aspects of the word 'family' apply to Isaiah?

    Hey we loved Isiah but we love how the characters of Miracle (Ira) and Zac are developing in Little Bits of Sky. Last night we only read four pages and then discussions hit about everything from care home living, school life for care children and Mrs Clanks. Great book choices so far.

    Hello Kingfisher Gladiators! Thank you for sharing your thoughts with us. It was very interesting to read them. It's certainly a sign of a good book if you want to rush on and keep reading. We hope you enjoy Malking Moonlight as much as this one. Happy Reading everyone.

    Hello HartleyBrook Group 2 - I wonder if you can give yourselves a creative group name and get Group 1 to do the same? A little friendly rivalry will had a great energy to your gladiator meetings.
  • Our Maps about Home and Family

    This week we discussed what family and home means to us. We talked about how Isaiah must have felt loosing his family and home.

    Hello Hartley Brook gladiators. Home and Family appear to be such simple, straightforward words, don't they? But they can be used in lots of ways and have different meanings for different people. I wonder how the words are used in the context of Word of Mouse?

    You can revisit these words and their meanings when you read Malkin Moonlight. Have you seen the Maggie Dooley poem in the resources section? It really helps to explore the concept of family.

    Glorious creative response - now where did you put that blue pencil!?
  • Glorious Gladiators

    This is our fantastic bunch of gladiators. I am so proud of how much they covered in the hour we shared and then hearing about the book as they read it in the week. A brilliant idea with a side order of fun.
