5.0 out of 5 stars Gregory Cool is very cool!!, 26 May 2011
We are a Year 3 class from Ealdham Primary school. We have been using Gregory Cool as our Literacy focus for five weeks. We loved it! We really enjoyed reading it and learning about Tobago. We have been writing poems and diary entries as if we were Gregory. We used freeze frames to show the important parts of the story, our teacher took photos and then we made a comic using a programme called Comic Life. They are really Cool!!!

We liked the part where Gregory and Lennox called each other nicknames - 'The Mighty Lennox' and 'Cool Greg'!! Also we liked the part when they went to the beach and Gregory thought he saw sharks but in fact they were friendly dolphins! We don't want to tell you anymore because we don't want to spoil it for you!

Enjoy reading it for yourself!

Shakespeare Stories: Twelfth Night

5.0 out of 5 stars The fabulous Twelfth Night!!, 21 Oct 2010
We read this book as a class and we loved it!!

Our favourite part was when Sir Toby Belch and Sir Andrew Aguecheek wrote a letter to Malvolio as if they were Olivia. They told him to wear yellow cross gartered tights so others would think he is mad!!

When the ship sunk at the beginning of the book, it created suspense as we didn't know whether Sebastian had died or not .....

The author used fantastic adjectives to describe the characters.... for example .... Sebastian and Viola were alike as two raindrops..... they had winning smiles.... they had bright blue eyes.

It was a very funny story~ entertaining for everyone!! But it could get confusing at times!

We have done lots of writing based on the book and we recommend it to anyone who wants to read a Shakespearean story!

From Emerald Class, Ealdham (Year 3)
