Reading for Autumn 2

This term the children will be reading Goodnight Mr Tom. They will each have a copy that they will occasionally bring home, they will be asked to read a chapter before the next day. Please can you ensure this task is completed, they can read with you, you can read to them or they can read independently.

We would ask you and your child only to read the directed chapter/s. Part of our reading curriculum is to make predictions and if they read on they will not be able to do this.

Other books your children could read this term are listed below.

Carries War- Nina Bawden

The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas - John Boyne

Billy the Kid -Michael Morpurgo

The Silver Sword-Ian Serraillier

Hitler Stole Pink Rabbit-Judith Kerr

The Diary of Anne Frank

Friend or Foe -Michael Morpurgo

The Amazing Story of Adolphus Tips-Michael Morpurgo

Once-Morris Gleitzman

Then-Morris Gleitzman

Now-Morris Gleitzman

We have some of these books in the school library.
