Wider Curriculum


As we would usually have time in the school library today, we had put together a 'Starbooks' style Book-Tasting for you. Although we haven't got the use of the library, we still think this will be a fun activity for you to do at home this afternoon. I have chosen three books for you to 'taste' along with a form for you to record your thoughts on each book. If you happen to have some books at home that you haven't read yet, you could also use those. 


Happy Book-Tasting! smiley
