Year 5 Summer Books

After the Easter half term we will be looking at two new books to help us with our writing and topic work.

The first book we will look at is ‘Explorer’ by Katherine Rundell and the second book will be ‘The Jungle Book’ by Rudyard Kipling.

If you wanted to get a head start during the Easter holidays, you can get paper copies and audiobooks online.

Watch this space for updates…


  1. I am currently reading it, as I got it for my birthday. At the start I predicted that their families had sent them on holiday and they had crashed landed there. So far I’m at the chapter “waiting for dawn”. It is about four children in the Amazon rainforest who had an emergency landing and the pilot supposedly died in the fire. I think they make it back home though.

    • Ah that’s brilliant Cassie, I’m so excited for you to read it! I really loved this book and the adventure it brought. We’ll have to wait and see if your prediction is correct, I wonder what adventure’s they’ll get up to in the Amazon rainforest?

  2. I have been reading the Jungle Book and its a really good book! Im glad that were learning about these books! I wont spoil anything for you haha! I cant wait to see all my friends back at school πŸ™‚
