Tantalized by Treason!

First of all, Year 5 have to say a massive thank you to Mrs Maylard-Mason for getting them a brand new set of books! We are so lucky to have a full set of our Class Read and we are using the books to their full advantage.

As a class, we are reading the novel ‘Treason’ and discussing the characters and themes, whilst also predicting what might happen next. Year 5 are thoroughly enjoying their Class Read and there is a big moan when we have to stop reading – I love it!

I absolutely love your enthusiasm for reading Year 5 and I want you to pass it on, so your challenge is to use our most recent stylistic writing device to write about reading. You will write using the technique of ‘anaphora’ and your starting phrase will be ‘reading is’.


Reading is stepping into a room of pure imagination. Reading is the swish of a fairy’s wand and the gleam of a knight’s sword. Reading is the glint of a crocodile’s eye and the cackle of an evil sorcerer. Reading is the flower of adventure that blooms inside you when you encounter a tale you have never heard before. Reading is the feeling that you are invincible, unstoppable and the hero of the story. 

You are, of course, challenged to use other devices such as similes and metaphors to improve your writing.

Good luck and I can’t wait to read your ideas!
