Jarvis has been reading Ghost Hawk it is about a young man who has to become a man by surviving the winter in the wild and can not communicate with anyone until he suffers a near death experience and then is allowed to hunt and so when he is allowed to hunt and succeded he is allowed to come back to his village as a man but his village has been invaded by the White Men. James has read 'The Executioner's Daughter'. It follows the story of Moss, the daughter of the man who chops people's heads off. Moss dreams of a better life outside the Tower of London but could a greater, supernatural threat be stopping her?

Rhosnesni trip to Glyndwr University
On Tuesday 25th of March, Pupils from Rhosnesni took a visit to Glyndwr University. They were shown many books by diffrent authors such as 'The Fury'. This book is about a man who lived an average life and woke up to the whole world hating him. There is only a small group left and they have to find out why the world wants to tare them to shreds. Also, there were 2 other authors and also a comic book writer came to the event.
James is currently reading The Executioners Daughter and he thinks that it's really good and highly reccommends it.

Carnegie and Kate Greenaway Medals
This week we have been looking at the shortlist from the Carnegie and Kate Greenaway book awards. So far, we have looked at the Kate Greenaway shortlist and 'judged the books by their covers' and then read the stories inside. We concluded the following:
'This is not my hat' was quite dark and enjoyed the moral of the story which was 'do not steal'.
'The Dark' was scary for a children's book and would be scary as a bedtime story.
'Paper Dolls' was a colourful book which had a happy feel throughout.
'Oliver' was very heartwarming and the reader could empathise with the character.
'The Day the Crayons Quit' was another colourful book with great illustrations and a good read for children.
'Mouse, Bird, Snake, Wolf' was a book more suited to children of an older age group, maybe 11-12 years old. But illustrations were very good.
See you next week.
