We’ve been trying out a new ipad app called ‘Aurasma’. It’s great! We can record a video book review and attach it to a book cover. Then, whenever someone points the ipad at that book cover they see our review!
Pat’s grandad visited us yesterday to tell us all about bookbinding. He’s a professional bookbinder and he’s done books for the BBC, The Queen Mother’s 100th birthday and Damon Alban! He’s also made books for the films ‘The Witches’ and ‘Jack the Giant Slayer’! He’s really great at bookbinding. He showed us how books are made and covered using traditional methods. We learned loads. Thanks Pat’s grandad.
We asked some people in our class some things to do with school!

First of all we are going to tell you about a book that was written by C.S Lewis called the Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe from a popular series called Narnia. The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe is a very creative story about a devious, sinister witch with a cunning brain. There’s a big ferocious lion and a mysterious contraption that appeared to be a wardrobe and led into a winter wonderland. A girl called Lucy entered and when she found out the truth about the place she thought differently about the place.
