Book reviews by Anna Rushall

Solstice: Around the world on the longest, shortest day by Jen Breach

Solstice: Around the World on the Longest, Shortest Day by Jen Breach

Solstice: Around the World on the Longest, Shortest Day is an ideal KS2 non-fiction title for supporting Geography, Maths and PSHE units. Much more than this though, it is an essential leisure non-fiction title for its ability to quench the thirst of all hungry young fact finders!
The Last Dragon by Polly Ho-Yen

The Last Dragon by Polly Ho-Yen

The Last Dragon is an ideal class reader for upper KS2 pupils (Years 5 & 6 in primary school), either as a text for reading lessons or as a stimulus for book talk in PSHE time.
Moving Up by Christian Foley

Moving Up by Christian Foley

Moving Up is a useful addition to the bookshelves of upper KS2 classrooms and Y7 form rooms, either as a text for supporting citizenship time discussions or for pupils to dip into independently.
