The Runner is a novel by Keith Gray. We are reading it in 2nd class. Jospehine Vahey from Galway Schools Library has lent us copies of the book. We read it in class.
We started it today (21/03/2011). It is all about a boy called Jason who runs away to Liverpool to his brother. So far we are up to page 16.
Today we made a podcast on a book called the Runner. It was fun. We all read different bits. Our team name was DOK which are the initials of our team. We podcast on the the computer and then after we got to listen to it. There was another second class team called CAS. They did theirs a lot differently from ours but both teams were doing the same chapter. After they did theirs. We got to listen to it too!!! They are brilliant, don’t you agree?!
