Read along with Miss Freedman:

This year, Miss Freedman has been reviewing books on the teacher panel of The United Kingdom Literacy Association. So far, she has read 22 books (from the 7-10+ category): Throughout the year, she has been going to meetings with other teachers from Oxfordshire to discuss each book against the judging criteria. Many children in year 6 have been reading along with her and will have their own firm favourites. Miss Freedman has just found out that she is going to be on the final panel, where she will judge the books that have made it through to the shortlist from each age category (3-6, 7-10+ and 11-14+). When the shortlist is released, why not read along with her. She would love to hear which of the final 6 books P&J children would put through from the 3-6 or 7-10+ category and why they are favoured. You can email your thoughts to her via the school office:

The shortlist has not been revealed yet – Miss Freedman will email out details as soon as they are released.
