I enjoyed this book, it is a classic!

The story is about a little girl called Heidi who goes to live with her grandfather in the mountains a long time ago.She makes friends with a boy called Peter who looks after the goats.Heidi is very happy but she has to go to the city to be a friend to a girl called Clara who is very rich and is in a wheelchair, Heidi likes Clara but misses her friend and grandfather a lot.

People who like stories about friendships would like this book, everyone should read a classic story.



Rhiannon - 5JM

Hercules by Sam Gayton

Hercufleas is a brilliant character! He is very brave and sometimes funny. He is a good friend to Greta. Greta is a very sad character, even at the end. I would like to have another story about Greta in which she finds a way to be happy again. My favourite bit was when the snake bit Hercufleas bottom!  I loved this book!




Jessica - 4S

Littlenose the Hunter by John Grant

This was a very good book! I enjoyed Littlenose’s adventures he is the main character and I liked his pet mammoth, Two-Eyes. They were good friends. It was interesting because you can learn a lot about the people who lived thousands of years ago from this book. I think this book can be read by children who are 7 years and over especially if they like adventure stories.


Alfie - Year 5 

Diary of Dorkius Maximus in Pompeii by Tim Collins


This book is very funny and you can actually learn a lot from it. It’s set in Roman times. If you like Diary of a Wimpy Kid you should really read this – I didn’t think I was going to like it but I really did!



Kyran - Year 6

Animalcolm by David Baddiel, Illustrated by Jim Field

Malcolm hates animals but his whole family love them.  One day he goes on a school trip…Oh no! To a farm!  Malcolm meets K-Pax the goat and then the story really begins. This is the best book I have ever read. It is a funny adventure with amazing moments. One of the best bits is the monkey moment- stop reading now if you don’t want to know what happens next but they throw poop at him! The pictures really add to the story too.

Adventure loving people who like to laugh will love this book!


Charlie - Year 2

Good Dog Lion - Alexander McCall Smith

I would give this book 10 out of 10 as it is a very good book. I really enjoyed it- I read some of it and my Mum read some of it to me and my brother and he liked it too. I really think people who like dogs would love this story as there is a very nice one in this book. There was a ‘Golden Ticket’ in this book so I got to choose a prize from the prize tin for reading it!


Adam - 5JM

Varjak Paw  - S F Said

Varjak Paw is a great book, it is about a cat who learns to fight in the way of his ancestor Jalal. He leaves home and goes on a big adventure to stop evil baddies. It will be good for anyone aged 7 to 12. I really enjoyed it and rate this book five out of five! It was also a Golden Ticket Book so I got a prize for reading it all!


Divine - 5D

Death and the Arrow, Chris Priestly

This is a fantastic book full of mysteries; you never know what is going to happen next. It keeps you guessing right until the end. I have read the sequel ‘White Rider’ too. They are both brilliant. People who like adventure stories should read this book now!


Noah - Reception Oak Class

Monster by Angela McAllister and Charlotte Middleton

Daddy read this book to me at bedtime. The hamster fell in the food and got bigger and bigger!

Daddy reads me a book in English and Mummy reads to me in Japanese.
