I am starting my PGCE in September and need to choose 2 books to read to a KS1 class and 2 to read to a KS2 class. So far I have considered for KS1 - The Bad-Tempered Ladybird (with cross curricular links to time and mini beasts/science) and The Snail and the Whale (with rhyming, geographical links, PSHE). For KS2 I have considered The Secret Garden (possible history links?) and then maybe a Roald Dahl book such as The BFG, mainly for enjoyment but also because of the wonderful language Roald Dahl uses in his books. If anyone has any suggestions (it is KS2 I am a little unsure of) I would be most grateful! I'm just worried about turning up to my course and having got the wrong end of the stick and setting off of a bad foot! Thank you!
