Reading for pleasure

Year 6 (Year 6) on: Year 6 Class Blog

After unwrapping our core story as a class, Zack was eager to read another one of our wrapped books. Zack was thrilled when he unwrapped the book to find The Explorer by Katherine Rundell! I know Zack is going to love reading this as it is one of my favourites! I can't wait to hear Zack's review of this book :)
