    Hi Year 3. I am reading Pippy Longstocking.

  2. Mrs Casey says:

    Thank you Miss Hector, great recommendation! I have found “Pippi Goes Abroad“ on my bookshelf (a sequel?). I will you know how I get on!

  3. I am reading Harry Potter and the Philosopher stone and I am on the third chapter.

  4. Miss Jones says:

    I love that book Ethan… what has happened in the story so far?

  5. I have read “The Boy In The Dress” by David Williams. In “The Boy In The Dress” a boy called Dennis finds out that his mum is not there. He, his dad and his brother John are in the house. Then one day he sees “probably the most beautiful girl in the school or even the whole world” called Lisa. While they are in time-out they become friends and then that same week on Saturday Lisa offers Dennis a dress! Dennis actually puts it on! He wears it to school but is then expelled by the headmaster, Mr Hawtrey. Later Dennis wears a different dress at the footy finals! Hilariously Mr Hawtrey is found wearing a dress himself at 7am! Finally Mr Hawtrey ‘de-expells’ Dennis from his school! In other words he’s back – with his dress.

    Dear Year 3,
    I hope you are well. I’m pleased that you are reading so much. I love to read and I’m going to use this time to read some of my favourites books and hopefully find some new authors to explore. Please keep posting on here and giving us all some ideas.
    Take care,
    Miss Coleman

  10. I have watched the movie Frozen II with Clemence a few months ago and I loved it. I love it because the songs are so good I also love that Elsa goes to an enchanted forest from her childhood. I am now reading the book and I am very excited to read on.♥️

  11. My book is called the Picture Dictionary of Ancient Egypt by Fiona MacDonald. The people in my book are the great Sphinx of Giza and Tutankhamun the almighty boy king. An interesting fact about the book is that Ramses the second is still in the Museums today. My favourite part of the book is about the hieroglyphics. I give it a 10 out of 10.

  12. Mrs Casey says:

    That’s right, Emily, it is still in the Museum of Cairo, I saw it when I went there. It is guarded by two armed security guards and you have to keep very quiet out of respect.

  13. I read Dork Diaries and I loved it. I love it because I like the way Nikki comes across lots of things to make her friends feel happy. I also love Pippy Longstocking because it’s very funny, I was Pippy for book day last year.

  14. Miss Jones says:

    This sounds like a lovely book to make you feel happy Penelope! 🙂

  15. My second book was called Coming Clean by Nick Warburton. The characters are Derek, Janey and Mr Such. The main adventure began when Derek rubbed his hands on Mr Such’s jeans. My favourite part was when the suit turned green. I rate it 10/10.

  16. Hi Emily I also loved that reading book do you remember when they had forgotten the pants on the bus?! 🚎

  17. I read Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl.

    It is about a little boy aged nine. He is poor and lives in a small house. One day he gets to visit Mr Wonka’s famous chocolate factory. Charlie lives with his father and mother and his four grandparents. They can’t afford two beds so they have one. It is for his four grandparents. Two are on one side and two are on the other side. Charlie and his mother and father sleep in the living room.

    I finished it in two days and I am reading Charlie and the Great Glass Elevator and then Matilda, I guess some of you like it ;)!

  18. Miss Jones says:

    Roald Dahl is one of my favourite authors Eugenia! My favourite book written by him is Matilda.
    Did you know he was born in Cardiff? The house he lived in growing up as a child is now part of a school in Cardiff called Howells’ School, I’ve been inside 🙂

  19. Hi Eugenia I also read those books and they are so great. I hope you like the books as much as I do.

  20. The book that I recently read was Dog Man Fetch-22 by Dav Pilkey. The main characters in the book are: Dog Man – he cant talk, he’s a cop; Petey-he has got a little clone, he’s a bit evil; Little Petey – he’s the clone of Petey, he made comics. The main events that happened were when Little Petey became friends with Molly (a tadpole) and there were 23-22 tadpoles. The tadpoles had super brain powers and they made a tree come alive!
    I would rate this book 10/10

  21. I also read Dog Man Fetch 22. The main things that happen are that Fair Fairy was being rude to children on her TV show so they fire her. Then she passes by a lake with lots of little tadpoles. After all of the tadpoles start shouting that Fair Fairy is their mummy but then Fair Fairy made all of the tadpoles evil. Then Little Petey,Petey,Dog Man and their gang are going to save the day! After Little Petey meets one nice tadpole called Molly.

  22. Miss Jones says:

    Wow sounds fun Angie!

  23. My third book was What is time by Claire Liewellyn. The character in the book is the boy in the picture that shows we all change. When reading the book I found out that the early humans started at the Cenozoic era, that was the main part. My favourite part was when a girl went to space for five years and came back in the future. I give it a 10/10.

  24. Miss Jones says:

    Sounds very interesting Emily, is your book non-fiction?

  25. I have been reading Dork diaries. Right now I’m on book five. In the 5th book Nikki enters a newspaper group for the school to try and stop Mackenzie her enemy to come to Brandon’s party (Brandon is Niki’s crush and Mackenzie’s too.)I have not finished the book but I’m close to the end.

    P.S. Dork diaries is one of my favorite books and the author is Rachel Renie Russel.

  26. Miss Jones says:

    Dork Diaries seems very popular! 🙂

  27. Hi year 3
    Last night I read the whole Dork Diaries series in one day.

  28. Mrs Casey says:

    That’s impressive, Penelope, how many books are there in the series? Which one was your favourite and why?

  29. Mrs Casey says:

    Hello Year 3, I have now finished reading Pippi Goes Abroad by Astrid Lindgren, which is the second book in the Pippi Longstocking series. It follows the adventures of Pippi, the extremely strong and funny little girl -who is not so good at spelling!- and her friends Tommy and Annika. In this book, Pippi is finally reunited with her father Ephraim Longstocking, the Cannibal King. My favourite part though was Chapter 5 where Pippi, Tommy and Annika go to the fair and all sorts of trouble ensues.. I would give this book 7 out of 10. I will now read The Iron Woman by Ted Hughes, which is a sequel to the Iron Man. I hope that you are enjoying your reading too!

  30. Miss Jones says:

    Wow sounds interesting Mrs Casey. I’m interested by the Iron Woman! Let us know what it’s like, we all loved the Iron Man so much!

  31. Penelope says:

    I am now going to read a book called Mermaid rock 🧜🏻‍♀️😜😍

  32. Miss Jones says:

    Remember to keep coming back to this blog when you finish a book 🙂
