Today was my schools summer fair. It was raining non stop so loads of things were cancelled and it looked a bit bare outside. But there was lots inside and it was still fun!
Todays book is fantastic Mr fox, by Risks Dahl.
I really like this book because of boggis and bunce and bean. They are funny, mean characters with different personalities. I think Risks Dahl thought carefully about these characters because they are very well described. In the story there is a very clever fox who steals meat from boggis and bunce and beans farms. The 3 horrible men plot to kill Mr fox and his family. What crazy ideas can they come up with and can humans dig faster than foxes?

I’m sorry I havent posted in a while. This is because I’ve been really busy practising for my dance exam and rehersing for our end of year. I know you probably think this is an ixecuse, but I can’t tell you how busy I’ve been.
Oh common! 4 days without a single hit! Looks like all hopes have gone for my goal of 150. It would be an achievement if I even got to 90 (im on 84). Oh well…..
I am a little sad today because I didn’t get to 100 hits by the end of the week. I have 75 right now so only 25 hits and I would of got to 100. So close!
my goal for the next week is 125. Come on people!
Today’s book is the longest whale song. This is the one I’m reading right now so I will only tell you a little bit. I’m not going to do a full review.. yet!
The Longest Whale Song by Jacqueline Wilson
I really like Jacqueline Wilson books because they are sooo griping. This one especially. The book is about a girl called Ella who has a pregnant Mum. When her Mum has the baby she falls into a deep deep coma and wont wake up. How will Ellla cope with just Jack, her horrid stepdad?
well today was sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo hot! It was absolutely boiling!
todays book choice is by Michael Morpurgo.
blurb: I dont have time to go and get the book right now but i will post a seperate post.
about: a girls diary of life half way through the second world war. She lives on a farm in an area by the sea which isnt affected by the war at all. But when some army soldiers come to practise in the area that they live in, they have to move out and live somewhere else. Soon boundry wires are put up everywhere and all the villagers are not aloud to go in there. Suddenly, Lillys cat goes missing and bombs are beeing dropped in the boundry area. What will happen?
what I like about it: the description and the story line because its all very well told and the word choices are perfect!

today I have started a new book called, ‘The Longest Whale Song’. Its really good and Im on chapter 3 already! I only started reading yesterday evening.
Anyway, today at school was my residential assembly. 2 weeks ago I was on a residential with my class. We went to this place called Plas Pencelli in Wales. In welsh ‘plas’ means big house/ mansion and ‘Pencelli’ was the name of the village. We had the best time ever! And we had nice weather except for the last day. We did loads of activitys including… Adventure walk, Climbing, Caving, Canoeing and the Dingle Descent (or Dingle Dangle of Doom as one of our instructors called it)
its not a very good picture but this is me (third from the right, look carefully!)
I don’t have much time to review a book today so I will do it tommorow (sorry!)
