Writing a book review about our favourite book...
You will hopefully remember that we warmed our book review brains up last week and so today I am asking you all to complete this book review format. There’s a good balance of illustrating, reviewing and writing a short description of the story.
If you are drooping from writing exhaustion you may like to video yourself reviewing your favourite book instead.
It would be great if you could show us the book and perhaps talk about some of the following...
What you like about it
Your favourite part
Your favourite character
Show us your favourite illustration
Say who you think would enjoy it.
Is it funny, exciting or sad and why
How many stars or thumbs you would give it out of 5!
I will share both written and video reviews on our class page and written reviews will also go into our class library to help children to choose their next book. 🙌🌟🤗
*** You may need to pace yourself throughout the day to complete this because of our many Zooms!
Book review sheet to complete ... or record a video!
10.30am - You are probably ready for our Puffin virtual visit from Nathan Bryon and Dapo Adeola. The link is on my blog page so I'll hopefully meet you there!
***This event is open to other schools and so although the meeting is via zoom, you will not be seen on the screen with your camera. You will just be watching the lesson. You will need a pencil and paper for a live draw-along!
Can you remember our book song ready for our Zoom?
Join us for our World Book Day/ Back to school Beech class Zoom meeting at 2.30pm
We hope to see there to round off what will have hopefully been an exciting and interesting day.
Please wear your costume/ mask if you have one and bring your favourite book along to share.
We will sing the book song we learnt earlier in the week. (I include a print out of the words below), Mrs Rogers will be reading a story and we will hold our raffle, which will include everyone on the Zoom, to win a copy of the poetry book, 'Twinkle, Twinkle Chocolate Bar.' This will be a shorter Zoom and should be finished by 3.00pm.
This is something you might like to try at home. We may have a go at school in the near future making a story puppet theatre.
World Book Day 2021: Author & Illustrator Academy: Lydia Monks
HOW TO CREATE A PICTURE BOOK THEATRE WITH LYDIA MONKSWorld Book Day is all about sharing stories - so why not share them in lots of ways?! Lydia Monks shows ...
I have included below some 'recommended reads' for Year 1 and 2 children. These are not 'official' booklists but a good mix I found. Some are picture books we have read or may read in the future and some are short chapter books which may be shared together depending on your child's reading level. You may like to look for some in the library! We will also be opening up our school library service on returning to school so you can start to bring a library book home too.
