Phoenix is the IVJS Favourite
Wow! We are totally hooked by Phoenix. This novel has everything: twists, turns, fantastic imagery, a roller coaster of emotions and action packed cliff hangers. As you can see we have been using our Reading Journals to write down our thoughts, opinions, questions for group discussion and our illustrations of the events and the amazing characters. Phoenix is now our favourite book out of the Reading Gladiator selection – you definitely saved the best for last!
Poetry Bombing at IVJS
Although our official World Book Day celebrations were cancelled due to snow, we managed to reschedule the event this week and our Reading Gladiators Poetry Bombed the whole school!
A Story Like The Wind
Iver Village Junior School, Year 6 Reading Gladiators, found this book deeply moving and thought provoking. We all felt that the story touched our hearts and encouraged us think about the plight of others. We hope you enjoy our retelling of the story in the Radio Adaptation Mini Challenge.
Line of Fire
The Year 6 Reading Gladiators at Iver Village Junior School were surprised by how much they enjoyed this book. We had some very in depth discussions and lots of fun being illustrators!
Children of the King Mini Challenge
We are a little behind on our challenges!
The Reading Gladiators felt that ‘power’ was the underlying theme in the book. Each of the letters show different ways in which power is exerted – powerful words, symbols of power, powerful people, power through war and peace, powerful weather and power through religion.
