  12. My favourite book is ‘My Secet Alien’. I like Zak the green alien who is magic because he is a ‘techno wizard’ from the planet Zog. He eats chocolate whic he keeps in his space rocket. His friend is Charlie who lives with his Mum and friends.

    Zak eats too much Earth food and gets sick so goes home. But he returns to see Charlie.

  14. Jacob sharp says:

    I like ‘Wind in the Willows’ I am reading this with my Daddy at bedtime . It is a chapter book and it has lots of different animals on the boat, like the Rat , Mole and the Otter and some birds. They sailed across the deep calm water to get to Mister Badger’s house.

    I like ‘Peter Rabbit’ because he gets stuck in a net with radishes that he likes. He escapes Farmer McGregor , who eats animals. I like radishes with my salad and hot dogs.

    I like ‘Zippel the little keyhole ghost’ Because he lives in Key holes
    And he is cheeky chap.

  15. Miss Travers says:

    I love Wind in the Willows. I remember reading that when I was a child too! I also love Peter Rabbit!

  16. I also read Rosie Revere Engineer. It was all about engineering and Rosie always made new things out of rubbish which is good because you shouldn’t throw things away if you can use them.

  17. I liked ice maker ice breaker because I like ice and you get to do an experiment!

  18. Miss Travers says:

  24. Rudolph Jacob says:

    Red PLANET IS THE TITLE of book i read. Wilf and Chip played on a rocket and pretended to be spacemen. The magic key glowed it took them into a new adventure. They went to space and found some aliens, they were inside a big cave on the red planet. Everyone was stuck in the cave. They were going to get a spacesuit and fill it with air so they could float out back to the rocket.

    Then they went home. Floppy didn’t like the magical adventure .because he was too scared.

  25. Miss Travers says:

    That sounds an excellent book, Jacob! You have retold the story so well! What book are you going to read next?

  26. Rudolph Jacob says:

    Red Planet is the title of the book I have read.

    Will and Chip made a rocket ship out of bits and pieces. Nadim came with his computer he wanted to play in the rocket.

    The magic key glowed and took them to a real rocket ship. They ran inside.

    They found aliens in a cave on a red planet. Everyone was stuck in the cave. The children filled a spacesuit with lots of air so they could float back to the rocket. Floppy was scared but they all got home safely.

  27. Miss Travers says:

    I’m glad Floppy got home safely!

  28. Today I read the Egyptian Adventure and I saw that pharaoh thought that Floppy was important.

  29. Miss Travers says:

    Hello Year 1. Do you remember that you loved me reading “No, I don’t want to do that!”? It was one of your favourites.
    You can see the author, Nick Cope, reading it on YouTube. Ask your grown up to help you find it.
    Keep up all the reading.

  33. Rudolph Jacob says:

    I am going to read to morow The long journey. I will use a different name because I am a secret spy .

  34. Miss Travers says:

    I’m looking forward to seeing your spy name! I’ll have to guess if it’s you writing or not! Enjoy the story tomorrow!

  35. Hello Miss Travers, my next book will be Alien Adventures Fact File and Cebolinha by Mauricio de Sousa from Brazil.

  36. Miss Travers says:

    Hello Mateus! I’m glad you’re still reading! You will have to tell me all about the books! I’m excited to hear what they are about!

  37. Gabrielle says:

    I am currently reading Modern Day Explorer. The story is about flying hot-air balloons but it is difficult and dangerous. At his fourth attempt in 1998, Steve Fossett managed to travel 22,908kms, which was a world record. Unfortunately he failed to go all around the world. At his seventh attempt, in 2002, Steve Fossett successfully achieved his goal to fly solo all around the world. It took him 324 hours, 16 minutes and 13 seconds. I think I would be too scared to fly in a hot-air balloon!
    I have also read Brutus. Brutus is the story of a country dog who has to go and live in the city because his masters live there. He is a very cheeky dog and he ultimately get used to the life in the city and reunite with his masters.

  38. Miss Travers says:

    That’s amazing that he went all around the world in a hot air balloon!
    Excellent reading, Gabrielle! You sound like you are reading lots of different books too! I’m excited to hear about your next book!

  39. Today I read The Crazy Christmas by Mauricio de Sousa and a boy called Crazy guy said “it was Mother’s Day” and then Cebolinha said “it’s not Mother’s Day” and Crazy told Cebolinha that it was Father’s Day and the boy said it was Kids’s Day and again Crazy said it was Carnival. After Cebolinha said “today is not Carnival”. Finally Cebolinha’s mum came and all of people inside his house disappeared. After that Santa gave Crazy guy a crazy present.

  40. Miss Travers says:

    That sounds a good book, Mateus.
    What was the present?

  41. Flash Banana Boy says:

    The Long journey was about a family going on holiday . They forgot to pack their food and clothes so when they arrived in Devon they didn’t find any food or suitcases in the car.

    The car had run out of petrol so they couldn’t go home. But Grandad arrived at the cottage with all their food and cases so he was the superhero.

    The funniest part was that Kerry had a choc ice for breakfast.

  42. Miss Travers says:

    That sounds a good book! They sound very forgetful! I’m glad Grandad arrived! What would they do without any food or clothes!

  43. Very important things

    For little learners who want to know everything

    I like this book because it is tells me everything about the world and animals and VOLCANOES.
    Fact:The world is made out of puzzle pieces When the puzzle pieces move apart, there might be a volcano or an earthquake. It can be dangerous. 🌍

  44. Miss Travers says:

  45. Kangaroo at the zoo
    Lesley Sims & David Semple
    I like this book because it is very cute but when the monkey is stuck at the top of the tree all the other animals help the monkey. 🐒

  46. Miss Travers says:

    That sounds a good book, Louise!
    It is nice that the other animals help the monkey!

  47. My favourite book is Pirates love underpants by Claire Freedman and Ben Cort because it is very funny: the pirates are looking for the golden underpant as treasure!

  49. Dear Miss Travers.

    I put some water in a cup and put it in the freezer and it turned into a mini iceberg . When we took it out it was very cold. Now I am going to put it in water and see how small it gets as it melts. We are also going to see if it is easy to break it.

  50. Hello Miss Travers.

    I read the Night It Rained Chips by Roderick Hunt. I liked this book because it was funny and in the night there is a chip hill that disappeared and then it starts to rain chips! In the end Mr Saffrey doesn’t want his wish to come true.

  51. Miss Travers says:

    A man was cutting the grass with a mower and the key broke the mower. The key ended up in a junk shop and a man bought it to paint some pictures of the keys. Kipper found the magic key in a picture.

  73. I read Mrs Grimbles’ Grape vine which had two stories in it, both were about birds.

    When Mrs Grimbles goes in her house the birds flew down to eat the grapes in her garden. She tried to build a scarecrow and to put a net over the grapes to scare the birds away but it did not work.
    In the end she decided to share her grapes with the birds.

    In the second story Jimmy found a little bird in the road. He took it back home and gave it some water and breadcrumbs. He then sang to it and it got better and went flying home to its family in a nest in a hollow tree.

    Dear Miss Travers

    I’m reading The billionaire boy by David Walliams and it’s about a boy called Joe and his friend is called Bob. Joe is a billionaire. He used to go to a very posh school where all the other boys bullied him,so he went to a new school and they had a country race and Bob and Joe were very slow in the race,so Bob let Joe go infront of him in the race.

    At lunchtime the menu at school is on Monday.

    Soup of the day -wasp
    Gerbals on toast
    Hair lasagne (vegatarian option)


    Brick Cutlet all served with deep-fried cardboard

    Dessert, a slice of sweat cake.

    The food at the new school is disgusting! and in chapter 5, Bob and Joe go to Raj’s shop to buy some chocolate and then the Grubb’s Twins take Bob and put him in a rubbish bin and take Bob and Joe’s chocolate.

    I am still reading my book and I am up to chapter 7 which is called The Witch.

  76. Miss Travers says:

    That book sounds excellent Isabella! Did you know David Walliams has written a new book called ‘Slime.’ It is being sold tomorrow I think!

  77. Isabella says:

    Thank you for telling me Miss Travers.

  78. The book I read today was called The Ugly Five the author was called Julia Donaldson.

    The ‘Ugly Five’ were animals who lived on the savannah who thought they were ugly. They were the Lappet Faced Vulture, Spotted Hyena, Wildebeest, Marabou Stolk and the WaterHog. They sang a song ‘ we are the ugly five’.

    Their babies thought they were not ugly but they were good , brilliant, nice and beautiful creatures, because they fed them and when they were in a bad mood they cuddled them and sang them songs.

    Their are 5 lists of animals., the big five, the little five , the shy five and the ugly five.

  79. Miss Travers says:

    You have retold that story so well Jacob! Well done!

  80. Miss Travers says:

    Good morning Year 1!

  81. Isabella says:

    Dear Miss Travers.

    I am still reading the Billionaire Boy and I am now. waiting for Slime by David Williams which is coming in the post . My Mum has bought it for me for getting a Star of the week certificate.

  82. Miss Travers says:

    That’s lovely and very well deserved! 🤗 when it comes you will have to tell us all about it! Enjoy the rest of your book!

  83. The book I read today was called The Fox and the Star.

    Fox lived in a forest and star is his friend. He was happy. Fox lost star and he felt sad. All was quiet Fox fell asleep. The Beetles woke Fox up, he ate the beetles.

    Fox went to find star, he asked the trees, the rain, the rabbits and the beetles. They said look up at the sky. He saw lots of stars and he found one of his very own. This made him happy.
