All the school council read a book called Medieval Days, Infosteps Set 2 . We did group reading.
Abbie and Nicole "Each member read a page each. We found the book interesting because the book had lots of facts and the pictures were really artistic. Our favourite part of the book was to build your own castle. It had all the instructions and pictures. This was an excellent book. "
Mary and Laura "The school council did group reading every afternoon about the medieval day’s. Each member had a page of the book each then we came back and read all the facts. The whole council found the book very interesting and we all liked it. We all liked it because it was educational and it will help us to learn. We all liked the pictures in the book very interesting. The subjects on the website were good.
Jamal and Paul "We all read a Medival days book as a group.We found the book excellent because it included lots of facts about the lives of medieval people. The book included things to make and do such as castle."
Here are some quotes of the members of the school council :
This book was a very interesting to read because the author had included something to make, explained Nicole.
I liked the book because it had some very interesting pictures to look at says Jamal
I enjoyed the book because4 it gave me something new to learn about. Says Paul.
We thought the website was bad because logging in was a pain.
We couldn’t find anything to do with the book we read.
There was information about other topics we could use for our school topics, this was quite useful.
High quality text, illustration. Usefull for group reading and in dependent research.
Pain to register and log in! Valuable once into it!
