Today we held a competition in which four of the books we have read so far in class battled against each other. Below are a small collection of the thoughts of the Year 4 children: it was genuinely one of the best 45 minutes I have ever spent as a teacher!
Charlotte’s Web is so imaginative: to take something so basic like a farm yard and create such an amazing story is so difficult.
Anglo-Saxon Boy made me realise how fun history can be. It made me want to go home and do my own research about the people.
Louis Sachar made me feel love for those characters. We all cared so much about what happened to those all of them.
I loved Stuart Little because it made me realise how important it is to be brave and not let anyone tell you what you can do.
There’s a Boy in the Girl’s Bathroom had me hooked from the start. We never knew which way it was going to go.
EB White’s books are so calm that they always leave me feeling relaxed and happy.
Anglo-Saxon boy inspired me to write so much more. It gave me fire in my tummy to have the same impact when I write. It made me realise how powerful it can be.
The character of Bradley taught me how important it is never to give up.
The action in Anglo-Saxon Boy was amazing. I love books like that!
