We have completed a book review for our class shared story. I would like your child to choose a book they have enjoyed recently at home to complete a book review for it. Your child has been given a sheet to write on. I will collect these sheets and put them into a book for our class library. The children will be encouraged to read the reviews to help them choose new books to read.
Your child has made decisions about the type of learner they are. Please talk to your child about the decisions they have made and why they see themselves in this way.
