Book Review – The Twits by Year III Book Club


We’ve been reading about The Twits. We decided to write about it because it’s a funny book. Even though the pranks are silly we would love to read another Roald Dahl book. His books are so good! We don’t care if it is silly or naughty we just want to read it that’s how great we think it is. If we had an opportunity of reading another Roald Dahl book we would take it and we think you should too. In this book Mr and Mrs Twit are doing pranks on each other. Mr Twit has a long beard when he eats food gets stuck in it.

Rafyur        My favourite part was when they stuck everything to the ceiling.

Rafat          My favourite part was the monkeys escaped.

Armaan      My favourite part was when Mrs Twit makes worm spaghetti.

We love Roald Dahl!

Book of the Month – June 2018


The book of the month for June is Soccer Squad – Glory by Bali Rai. This book has been chosen to coincide with the World Cup which will take place later this month.

“Dal, Chris, Abs and Jason have made the squad for the local youth club under-lls football team. And after their first match (not as successful as they’d have liked), they are determined to prove that they’ve got what it takes to be winners.

Rushton Reds for the Cup!

Chris is a striker – but can he put the ball in the back of the net when Rushton Reds meet Evington Eagles, their chief rivals, in a big Cup game? He and his team-mates – Dal, Jason and Abs – all want to lift the trophy. But Evington Eagles are the Cup-holders and won’t be easy to beat . . .”

Book Review – Diary of a Wimpy Kid by Zaara and Mahdi



The main characters in this book are Rodrick, Manny, Rowley, Greg, his mum and his dad. One of the things that happened in the book is that Greg got a woolly, red sweater that he disliked from his mum for Christmas. We really enjoyed this book because it was hilarious and interesting. We really enjoyed reading about Greg and his family and friend’s daily life. We would recommend this book to lower and upper phase. We would give this book 5 out of 5 stars. Would you like to read another book by Jeff Kinney? Come to the library and you can borrow some more books from the Diary of the Wimpy Kid book series.
