Hello Mrs Kelsall-Roberts!
I am reading some Project X books about space and aliens. My favourite character is Ant because he is very smart and always works things out. In the book the main characters have to fight alien creatures called Meebs. They are like big jelly fish. I am always excited about reading the next book in the series!

Hello Mrs Kelsal-Roberts!
The book I have been reading is called The Twits. It was written by Roald Dahl. My favourite part was when Mr and Mrs Twit had the shrinks. The chapters are short. The worst part was when they bought the guns from the shop to kill some birds. I enjoyed the book.

Hello Mrs Kelsall-Roberts
I'm reading Fairy Unicorns - Cloud Castle by Zanna Davidson.
The book is about Zoe and her friend Astra, the fairy unicorn, who got trapped in a volcano with the clouds at the bottom and it was Orion the evil unicorn who trapped them in the volcano and her friends get them out. I am enjoying this book and have some more to read in this series.

Hi Charlotte, well done for logging onto this Reading Blog. I like the Twits too, a very funny story. I like how you have told us which part of the story was your favourite and which part was the worst part. I am glad that the bad part where they kill some birds didn't put you off reading and enjoying the book. Well done , I look forward to hearing about other stories that you are reading at home in the future, Mrs K-R x

Mrs Kelsall wrote:

Hi Ella, well done for logging onto our Reading Blog. Fairy Unicorns sounds like a fun read with lots of strange and wonderful things happening in it to get your imagination going. I bet lots of the girls in class would want to read this book after reading your book review (maybe the boys too). Carry on with your reading at home, I am impressed, (Your mum said you have been interested in reading an encyclopedia too). I look forward to hearing what you thought of that book too, Mrs K-R x

Hello Mrs. Kelsall-Roberts
At the moment I am reading The Twits by Roald Dahl. It is set in Mr. and Mrs. Twit's house. I like this book because Mr. and Mrs. Twit play tricks on each other which makes it funny to read. My favourite character is Mrs. Twit because she gets her own back on Mr. Twit by tricking him into eating wormy spaghetti and she also puts her glass eye into his beer so it looks back at him when he finishes his drink. I would recommend this book to my friends because it is funny and makes you laugh lots.

Hi Libby, well done for logging onto our Y3 Reading Blog. The Twits book is a very funny book, I can imagine you laughing at it while you are reading it. You need to speak to Charlotte and compare your thoughts about the book, she is reading it too. Mrs Twit, does play some funny tricks on Mr Twit doesn't she? I don't think I'd like to be on the receiving end of any of those tricks, so don't even think about bringing me wormy spaghetti in for a treat lol. Carry on reading at home, I can't wait until you write and let me know how it ends, I wonder if Mr Twit gets his own back on Mrs Twit? Well done, Mrs K-R x

Mrs Kelsall wrote:

Hi Eva, well done for logging onto our Y3 Reading Blog. That book does sound interesting. Did you choose to read it because of the title? I know you love to read, and I know that you especially love learning new words and their meanings so this book is right up your street (good choice). Well done, keep reading at home and let me know how the book ends, Mrs K-R x

hello Mrs Kelsall-Roberts.
I am reading Boogie bear by David Walliams. My Favourite character is the bear with the big floppy ears because he fell in love with the polar bear and helped all the other bears realise that they should love each other no matter what colour their fur is. I would definitely recommend this book to my friends because i think that they would like the ending because the bears fall in love which is a lovely ending to the story.
