Welcome to the Reading Corner!

Miss Oxley has set the first reading challenge of the year for 6O - can the children read a book over the Christmas holidays? It was wonderful to see so many of the class taking part in the challenge to read 'The Nine Lives of Montezuma' by Michael Morpurgo; a story about a resilient cat born in a barn that faces many challenges throughout his life.

What was your favourite part of the story?

It is hard to choose because there are a lot of thrilling parts! If I had to choose, it would be the scene where Sam and Monty are fighting. This encouraged me to read more.

Who was your favourite character?

Monty - he was a funny cat because he put his head in a can!

- Reece S

Who would you recommend this book to?

Anyone over the age of 10 because it is a beautiful piece but there are a few sad bits. The story is a joy to read so I think maybe Year 5 and Year 6. The book is thrilling to those who read it - enjoy!
