The Runner

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?!
