Reading in Maple class

We love to read in Maple class and we take every opportunity we can to get stuck into a good book! Each day, we spend some time reading our class read together and every Wednesday we get to spend time in the school library where we choose a book to read and also share stories with each other. Below is some information about our class read and the text we are studying in our English lessons.
Our Class Read - Summer Term
In the Summer term, we are beginning by reading a book that we chose from Alnwick Library, 'Dragon Storm: Kai and Boneshadow' by Alastair Chisholm. 
Our Class Read - Spring Term
To support our reading in English, we have been reading a book of traditional 'Norse folktales, myths and legends' by Anika Hussain. Some of the stories are familiar to us and others are new, it has been fun learning about ideas from a different culture!
Our Class Read - Autumn Term
We have spent some time in class talking about British values and so our first class read is called, 'Atticus Claw Breaks the Law' by Jennifer Gray. It is a vey entertaining book and will let us have plenty of discussions about right and wrong, following rules and how we can always try to help one another.
Our English Text - Summer Term
This half term, we are reading 'The Glass Tear' by Anna Howard. This is a beautifully illustrated book, full of wonderful vocabulary that we can use to widen our own vocabularies!
Our English Text - Spring Term
This half term, we are reading 'The Last Viking' by Terry Deary. This is a book full of adventure and excitement and we will be writing our own 'final chapter' based on it.
Our English Text
To start the year, we are reading the Charles Dickens classic, 'Oliver Twist'. We will be reading this exciting and gripping story together and using it to base all of our written tasks on. 
Enjoying the Library!
Every Wednesday, we get to go to the library to choose a reading book and we also read a book as a class, either a chapter from a longer book or a picture book, which bring back lovely memories from when we were younger!
