You can read the ebooks for free by joining up to their website and clicking on the parents button and adding your username and password.

Did you like these stories? Please type out a book review to tell me what you think. I have pasted a sample below or you can have a look on www.twinkl.ie for different types. You can email them to me at lcmgovern@scoillorcain.com. I’d love to read them.
Please try and do two by the end of next week. When typing, think about what you liked about the character Clive. What kind of adjectives would you use to describe him? Was the story interesting? What rating would you give the story? Why? When writing the review about Animal Tricksters think about the adjectives you would use to describe monkey. Did you like his character? Why? 
Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you need any further or different work. It is easy to feel overwhelmed or overloaded when the world is so upside down at the minute. School is very different from home, so if it’s not working please do contact me at lmcgovern@scoilorcain.com and we can tweak or change the workload. Keep safe! L McGovern
