We just love this book! The children think it is fantastic. In their own words “we are gripped”! We think the title is hilarious and it always makes us smile to say ‘Wed Wabbit’. We laughed today about the King and his rhyming with made up words! The children love making notes in their journals. What a fantastic group of readers 🙂
Introducing Wed Wabbit
We can’t wait to find out more about Fidge, Minnie,Wed Wabbit and the Wimbley Woos in our new book!

Angelic and Non-angelic Traits!
At Kearsley West Primary school we have just started Reading Gladiators in Year 4 and we are loving it so far! We have made a list of angelic traits and are recording any non-angelic traits that Angelino demonstrates!

Year 4 Reading Gladiators worked together to create this montage of their dreams and aspirations. They used laptops to find images, wrote short descriptions and produced illustrations. Some interesting and varied dreams!
The children have loved the text so far.

St Paul’s CE Bury – A World of Pure Imagination
As a group, we talked about imagination. The title, A World of Pure Imagination, made us think of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory!
We each chose something from our imaginations to create and put them together to create our world!
Just Imagine comment: hello St Paul's, Bury. There were so many things that we liked about your artwork. The 3D cake was a great idea (it made us a bit hungry!). And that black spider loomed large and did a good job of representing the fearful side of the imagination.
The artist Picasso once said, 'Everything you can imagine is real'. Do you agree? Perhaps you could discuss this with your teacher?

Ms Monteverdi’s Art Class
Our Y4 gladiators have created this montage inspired by Ms Monteverdi's art class. We thought about her advice 'draw with the soul, bring the image from your blood and bones.'
Just Imagine comment: Your individual works of art combine very well to create a dramatic impact. The quotation that you have chosen is very apposite for the theme of the display.
St Paul’s Gladiators
Our Y4 Gladiators are loving Reading Gladiators! They are super enthusiastic and enjoying our first book!
St Joseph’s Year 4 Reading Gladiators- The Tale of Angelino Brown
Year 4 reading extracts from their books to make comparisons between the story and real life.
What will happen to Angelino?
We have predicted what might happen next to Angelino!
Introducing St Joseph and St Bede’s Reading Gladiators
Hello everyone from a very sunny Bury! We are really looking forward to reading all about Angelino Brown. The first chapter had us in hysterics!
Bye for now, catch up soon.
We have been making notes about some of the characters that Angelino has met so far!
What’s a Bloke?
We discussed the term ‘bloke’ and what it meant to us as ‘northerners’ from Bolton.
What makes an Angel?
In our second session, we discussed what kind of traits we would expect from an angel. We then wrote down all the actions that Angelino had done so far that we thought were definitely not angelic! 🙂
Our First Session!
We had a great first session last week and really enjoyed starting the text!
What does an angel look like?
We had a great session drawing and talking about angels. The Reading Gladiators at WCPS are so excited about the year ahead!
Let the challenge begin!
Hello to all Year 4 Reading Gladiators in the North-west. We are looking forward to hearing what you think about this year’s books. Be sure to post an update and tell us how you are getting on.
