CROW reporter Joe Tyler joined pupils at Melbourn Primary School on Monday as part of their bookbusters week.

The year four, five and six pupils were taught how to write critical reviews of books and films, which will eventually be made into a Film 2010 style review programme.

Head teacher Emma Kapitan said: “The children have been thoroughly enjoying the week and we have already had children dressing up and interviewing characters during their lessons.

“Each class has chosen a different book including Where the Wild Things Are and Fantastic Mr Fox and we hope that by using books and film the children will be inspired to read and write from genres that they may not normally choose and bring fun and inspiration into their learning.”
