This term our class have been reading the book Born to Run by Michael Morpurgo. The children, Miss Daffy and Aoife are all really enjoying this book!
The book tells the story of a greyhound who goes through many different name changes and scenerios during his life. During reading this book, we have had the opportunity to use many of our Building Bridges of Understanding strategies such as Predicting, Visualising and Making Connections.
The children have carried out great activities based on this book such as acting out scenes in drama, drawing a favourite scene in Art and writing excellent diary entries and character profiles as well as many more written activities during English writing class.
So far we would give this book 10/10 and is definitely a book for all ages!
