Write a book review

We are going to write a book review. The main purpose of a book review is to help others decide whether they should read the book themselves.

Choose a fiction book you have read and enjoyed recently. When you write your review  it can help if you imagine you are talking to someone who's asking you whether they should read the book.


Think about how you will structure your book review.

Here are some things to include:

  • The book's author, illustrator and title. 
  • Does the book fit into a genre ( e.g. mystery, historical fiction, science fiction etc.)?
  • Write a brief summary of the plot that doesn't give too much away.
  • What did you like about the book?

          Who was your favourite character and why?

          Did the story keep you guessing, make you laugh, make you cry? 

         What was your favourite part of the book?

         Were certain types of scene written particularly well?

         Did the story grip you and make you want to keep turning the pages?

  • Mention any thing you disliked about the book.
  • Finally, summarise your thoughts about the book and suggest the type of reader you would recommend the book to ( younger readers, older readers, fans of adventure stories/ comedy). You could even give your book a rating out of five stars. 

 Have fun!



Draw and colour your favourite character from the book you have reviewed.  


Greek Myth

Watch the video (from last week) that tells the story of Arachne and Athena. 

Can you write the story in your own words?


Arachne was a talented weaver. Her tapestries were so lovely that people paid a fortune to buy them. 


In class we have made our own cardboard looms and have tried some weaving. If you have some stiff card and wool at home, have a go at designing your own beautiful piece of woven wool.
