What a wonderful story Krindlekrax is! I really look forward to the new chapters every day? Who is your favourite character? I think mine is Wendy, Ruskin's mum.

Matilda has produced some excellent work based on some recent chapters, showing a wonderful understanding and enjoyment of the story. Fantastic! 30HP!

Have you been reading for pleasure at home? Remember to take a quiz, just over a week to meet your target this half term. Zoe has been doing some reading with a furry friend (I think they might struggle going on AR with their paws though!). Great reading, Zoe. 20HP!

Are you enjoying Krindlekrax? I think its fantastic, especially today's chapters. They really drew me in to the world!

Matilda completed a brilliant reading task based in the book! Excellent work, 10 extra HP for trying so hard!

Matilda also did a Wanted poster based on Danny The Champion of the World. Have you all taken an AR quiz on the story. Remember you can always go back and rewatch the story on the website if you missed any parts. Another extra 10HP Matilda!
