What's going on in Y5?

Year 5 Reading Challenge

 

Y5’s class target is to read at least 50 books (as a class) from the list below! The books chosen are a mix of action, adventure, fantasy and children’s classics.

 

Children are welcome to read books which are not on the list but for them to count towards our total of books they need to be off this list. The list is to encourage the children to challenge themselves a little more in their reading and maybe move out of their comfort zone for one book.

 

A lot of the books are either in our classrooms or can be found in the school library so you don’t need to buy any for your child to take part in the target.

 

Thank you for your support this half term,

 

Miss Goodger and Mrs Lawrie
