Mrs Organ

The Magnificent Moon Hare by Sue Monroe


A bad tempered Princess demands a pet dragon but when it arrives it turns out to be just as bad tempered as the Princess!

Hazel Class like books about dragons and this one is funny too!


Mrs Middleton

Who’s Afraid of the Big Bad Story? by Lauren Child


Year 1 Maple class are reading this lovely book.  It’s funny and has all of the fairytale characters in it. It is a fantastic way to introduce our ‘Big Bad Wolf’ theme!



Miss Jewell

Gangsta Granny by David Walliams

I am reading this book to 3J- I like it because it is so exciting, funny and really quite different! The relationship between Granny and Ben is very well written which makes the story easy to believe- even though the plot is a bit mad!


Miss Saunders

Oliver and the Seawigs by Philip Reeve and Sarah McIntyre

4S and I are enjoying this book. It is a lot of fun to read aloud, with lots of different characters like a bossy short-sighted mermaid, sarcastic seaweed and the naughty sea monkeys! The humour in this book is clever, the pictures are very comic and we recommend this wacky adventure!




Mrs Brown

"Pugs of the Frozen North" by Philip Reeve and Sarah McIntyre

This book is fantastic! The story starts very quickly and the characters of Shen and Sika are very likeable, the pictures are funny and the language used in this book is clever and at times beautiful. EVERYONE should read this book! There are 66 heroic pugs in this story, who doesn’t love a pug?!
