This is the page for the Centurion Zero to Hero readers. If you are a Centurion… click here to login!
Centurions are able to blog their experiences with books and stories.
Rebecca Westcott will then be able to join in too!
‘It was the best of times, it was the worst of times…….’
A brilliant book with an excellent storyline.
‘The rich feasted in palaces while the poor scrabbled like rats for food in the gutter.’
The characters are really interesting because it is difficult to understand who is good and who is bad apart from the heroes!
This is a mixture of fact and fiction and also short, but very entertaining. I would recommend it to anyone who would enjoy a simplified version of a Charles Dickens novel. I also think that people, like me, who are interested in the French Revolution would love it!

Bananas and Barnacles!! Emily Jane’s Uncle Bartholomew has gone missing! But suddenly, the Monkey Pirates arrive out of Emily Jane’s wardrobe and take her on hilarious adventures. This will make you laugh until your jaw aches. I recommend it to readers who have grown out of Jeremy Strong, but still have a thirst for the giggles.

It was so fantastic to come into school yesterday and meet all you amazing Centurion readers! There are so many of you who have read one hundred books (well, one hundred and counting – I know from talking to you all that you definitely haven’t stopped reading just because you’ve made your centurion!).
So, now that you are officially expert readers, we’re moving on to the next exciting step. You obviously have lots of thoughts and opinions about books and through our blog, you can share them with lots of other readers. Whether it’s a book that you think was completely brilliant or a book that left you feeling a bit disappointed, you can write about it here.
Here’s a quick recap of all the things we discussed yesterday about how to write a good book review:
I can’t wait for you to start writing your reviews so that I can read them on the blog and write back to you. I know that a couple of you are already thinking about which book to write about – I’m looking forward to reading those Diary Of A Wimpy Kid reviews really soon!
The Centurion Club will have an exciting launch today when they meet our new Patron of Reading for Shaftesbury Primary School. Rebecca Westcott, a local author, will meet the Centurions , who have been a part of our Zero to Hero Reading Challenge since October. They have read 100 times at home and are making great progress with their reading.
The 26 Centurions will now be able to add book reviews and ask questions to our new Patron through our new Centurion Blog. Rebecca Westcott will also keep us up to date about what she is reading, writing and with inspiration so that our Centurion Club can get even more members.
