Reading logs

As well as completing weekly key skills, there is the expectation at Simon de Senlis that children are reading at least three times a week. Entries in the reading log need to be signed by an adult and can include any text. This may be in the form of a newspaper, menu or even a blog post – the list is endless! Here are pictures from our Friday afternoon library session 🙂

  1. I have recently read The Magic Finger by Roald Dahl. I love this book because it is funny and creative. It would never happen in real life. It is about how a little girl has a magic finger and she puts a curse on a family she is real close on. I am putting it back in the library this Friday so you can get on Monday. Hope you read this book and if you do I hope you like it.

  2. Girl Online:

    My favourite book at the moment is Girl Online because it can tell you so much about e-saftey. Zoe Sugg aka Zoella is turning some of her characteristics e.g. anxiety and panic attacks. And she put it into a book. Penny has all sorts of internet troubles on her blog and about her personal life. She gets cyber bullied and decides to turn her blog private so only her best friend Elliot, Teacher Miss Mills and a user named Pegasus girl can see. I would recommend this book as it teaches you how to control real life situations.

  3. The book that I am reading is called Rat burger. I love this book because the author that wrote it is called David Walliams and the books he writes is really funny and I have got a few books that are by him. He really inspires me because the work that he does is brilliant.

  4. My favourite book is called ‘Opal Plumstead’. It is set after Queen Victoria died and it is set before WW1. My favourite thing about the book is the fact that it is set in History and it gives me a chance to really learn about a young girls perspective in the 20th Century, rather than hearing about all the stories we hear nowadays about the rich and royals who have the perfect life and everything is planned for them.
    The author of the book is called ‘Jacquline Wilson’-who has wrote over 100 books. She has written loads of books from a young girls persective.

  5. I would recommend reading “ Usain Bolt” I have chosen to share with you about this because it show you about how you can do anything you aspire to and his dream was running. He didn’t let anything get in his way to stop him from reaching his dreams. It also shows you how to practise your running and how to overcome your fears of the world. Bolt has got knocked down a million times but that didn’t stop him from being the fastest in the world.

  6. I have recently been reading a book called ‘Hamish And The World Stoppers’ and it is by far the best book I have read in a long time. I like this book because the description the author put in the book is very well done which allows my imagination to go wild. I don’t have a very good imagination but this book has really made it come to live. I recommend this book to any ages including older or young people.

  7. The book that I am reading is called `The Slippery Slope` it is beginning to be my favourite book so far. I like reading in the Library with all my friends so we can hear each other read. What book are you reading? How do you feel when you are reading a book?

  8. The book that I am reading is called Awful Auntie. This book is one of my favourites because the author who wrote it is amazing his called David Walliams. Some of his books that I have read are really interesting because he puts a lots of detail.

  9. The book I am reading at the moment is the world of norm it is a 9+ but it is very funny and has made me giggle quite a bit. This is one of the books that is related to diary of the wimpy kid so if you get the chance borrow this book from the library or your reading level book.

  10. Billionaire Boy:
    This is my favourite book as it is hilarious and great to read. This fantastic book was written by David Walliams, he is my favourite author as well. This book is about a boy called Joe and his life experience at being a billionaire. At first he doesn’t want anybody to know but… eventually at his new school everybody figures it out. Because of his Dad girlfriend, he finds out that his dad paid his girlfriend to like him. I love this book so much and recommend it to you.

  11. I recommend the book Wolf Brother. Just the first sentence got me hooked it has so much adventure and curiosity. Every night I read a chapter of it and it makes me want to read even more of it there is so many cliff hangers.

  12. My favourite book is Grandpa’s Great Escape by David Walliams as it is very funny. It has a great storyline and I think that it is one of the best books I have ever read. Even though there is an upsetting part at the end it doesn’t mean that it isn’t a good book. The book is very funny and there are some areas of tension in it as well. I felt like I was in the story as I was reading it. Grandpa’s Great Escape is a great book and it is a very humorous book I would recommend it.

  13. Personally I recommend Grandads Great Escape by David Williams as it is really adventurous and if you are learning about WW2 it could come in handy. There are two parts of the book the first part is not really interesting but all the fun bits are in part two as it is more adventurous and more. I think part two is really good but in general the whole book is good and so far it my favourite book.

  14. Gulf is the book I chose because it is really emotive. It may be a bit depressing but it doesn’t matter because it hook the reader in. It talks about how he couldn’t love his brother when the boy did love him. I still have not read it all but I think it takes place in Iraq. My little brother introduced me to the book a few weeks ago and he told me he enjoyed the book. I would recommend it to people who cry when they depressed because it will actually hook you into the story. Plus it will feel like you are in the book as well.

  15. At the moment I am reading Gangsta Granny from David Walliams. His books are the ones I love right now I like his books that much I read one in a whole day. I recommend reading this book because it brings your imagination to life his books are so good I bet everyone loves them to. Once you have read one you will want to read all of them.

  16. My favourite book is Sir Walter Raleigh. In this book there is a curious kid who wants to find out why his parents and relatives hate their ancestors. They get invited to a party were this adventures young boy meets a random person. He goes to get a drink and comes back but he wasn’t there. His family say his head had got chopped of, but he never really believed those things. They visit the place his ancestor lived things appeared…

  17. At the moment my favourite book is Diary of a Wimpy kid old school. The main reasons are because its full of humour and its really entertaining also because its mainly a good book anyway, not only the one book though also the other ten books that come before it. When you first look at how many pages are in it you may think that it will take for ever but once you start reading it you’ll get through it in no time.

  18. I am reading Grandpas Great Escape by David Walliams

    I find it really cool and it is about a grandad that was a World War 2 pilot that tells his grandson his stories of being an R.A.F pilot and he gets an incurable illness and he forgets his recent life and forgets that his grandson has been born and his grandson has to play along and is called wing commander and his grandad has been found in the cockpit of a spitfire and he is sent to prison and his grandson was in the interrogation room with him. I need to read on!

  19. My favourite book is David Walliams Grandpas Great Escape because it is funny and entertaining. I read it every night to find out what kind of adventures Grandpa is having. I recommend David Walliams books for everyone.

  20. I am reading a book called storm breaker and it’s a very good book I recommend it, it is a very good book its about a kid who has a dad who died in a car crash so go and by it.

  21. I would personally recommended Space, Stars and Slimy Aliens. This is because this book tells you the truth about your body in a fun and educating. There are a variation of book to choose for which have their own subject: digestion, bones and many more.

  22. I really like the new book I got in the library that’s called the secret hen house theatre, because it has a interesting blurb and it makes you read the book on and on; even though the book is upsetting it also interesting at the same time.

  23. The book I’m reading is The wooden Mill. I do recommend it for kids in key stage 2 because it has a lot of words which they understand more and if you like mystery it’s the book for you. Here is a summary : Crampton Rock seems the perfect place to spend summer. But something has to spoil it…
