A Series of Unfortunate Events - The Reptile Room by Lemony Snicket
This unfortunate book carries on from the horrible event in Count Olaf’s filthy house. They have now been sent to their closest relative (Montgomery Montgomery for short Uncle Monty). It seemed as if the Baudelaires were having a lot of fun in his house. Until someone found them who had been keen to put his hands on their enormous fortune.

Why I liked the book
I liked the book because it was very fascinating and it was a very intense book.
My favourite character was Sunny Baudelaire because she was very funny.
I recommend this book to people who like intense books because if you like happy books then after reading the first few pages you would put the book right down.

Extreme Reading Awards Ceremony
We are delighted to inform you that following a visit in December 2017 by external assessors, we have been awarded the Ealing Reading Quality Mark (ERQM) at Bronze Level. Pupils were presented with the plaque at a special ceremony on Tuesday 6th February 2018. The award was presented to Tudor pupils by the Mayor of Ealing at The Alec Reed Academy.
The reviewers were particularly impressed by the positive involvement of parents and pupils in our many workshops and activities across the school. This includes regular events such as Soft Start, Family Friday, Learning village etc. as well as Curriculum Meetings, Parent Language and Phonic workshops, Adult Education classes held on site etc.
Our pupils enjoy a variety of literary experiences including poetry performances, theatre visits, reading competitions, storytelling workshops, Reading Buddies, World Book day and more! The recent performance of Romeo and Juliet by the visiting theatre company and our current KS2 Reading Challenge competition all add to our pupils’ experiences. They were also very impressed with all the hard work that Mrs Lewis our school librarian does in our school library! Well done everyone!
