Day 3 - Today we want you to think about what your favourite book is and bring it along to your class catch up this afternoon. You need to think carefully about why is it your favourite and why you would recommend it. You will need this book for tomorrow so keep it handy!
Day 4 - Today we want you to write a book review of your favourite book. In your assignments, you will find a sheet to fill in. We’re expecting at least four or five sentences per section. We want to put the best ones up on the website so make them as interesting as possible. Looking forward to what your favourite books are.
