It is absolutely marvelous that our Year 6 children are reading so much! Most children are now reading and recording in their records every day (and some children are even reading once in the morning and once in the evening too) which will contribute to their reading stamina and level of comprehension.

This is a great book and accompanied by a glass of ginger beer, it is simply a pip!
