Please continue to read daily at home. Remember, reading to your child is an important as listening to them read to you!
If you read a particularly good book, it would be great if you could write a short book review about it to recommend it to your classmates! Here are some questions you could answer about it:
What was the book about? What was your favourite part?
Who was your favourite character? Who else do you think would like the book?
Can you make connections to other texts you know?

Max and the Millions
by Ross Montgomory
Max is used to spending time alone - it's difficult to make friends in a big, chaotic school when you're deaf. He prefers to give his attention to the little things in life... like making awesome, detailed replica models.
Then Mr Darrow, the school caretaker and fellow modeller, goes missing. Max must follow his parting instruction: 'Go to my room. You'll know what to do.'
There on the floor he finds a pile of sand ... and in the sand is Mr Darrow's latest creation... a tiny boy, no bigger than a raisin, Luke, Prince of the Blues. And behind the tiny boy... millions of others - a thriving, bustling, sprawling civilization!
