Boyznbikes #1

Currently Room 10 is reading Boyznbikes by Vince Ford as a shared book.
This book is all about a boy called Callum who can't help getting into trouble. He gets suspended from school and his dad has allowed him to travel with him, Baz, and Skid on their annual Big Bike Ride. Many things unfold and Callum learns a lot about his dad and the SECRET!!!!

What I would like is for room 10 students (everyone else who is reading this book too is more than welcome also) to answer questions posted on this site about the book and use inference to try and guess what happens next.

QUESTION set ONE: Who do you think Maddy is?, What makes you say that?

    We think that Maddy might be an x-wife of Callum’s Dad, Because Callum’s Mum and Dad have been hiding something from him as he heard them talking about something unusual that they wouldn’t tell Callum about it.

  2. I think that Maddy is Callum’s sister or brother that he doesn’t know about because his dad seems very secretive about it and he might not want Callum to know.

  3. I reckon that Maddy is a step sister that Callum doesn’t know about. I thimk that his mum and dad are determined that Callum doesn’t find out about her.

  4. We think that Maddy is a girl who is Callum’s Dad’s ex wife. Callum has never heard of her and does not have a clue who she is.

  5. I think Maddy is Gregs widow and dosn't like Callums Dad because his Dad might have a part in Gregs death.

    I think that Maddy is Callums Uncle or Aunty that he doesn’t know about. I think that he or she is something to do with the secret that he heard his Mum and Dad talking about.

    We think Maddy is a second wife of his dad or a new sister for Callum. We think this because Callums parents act weird around him whenever Maddy is accidentially mentioned.

    We think that Greg died and he could have been faking his death and he is in disguse.
    We think that because
    Callums dads friends are always out every year on their motorbikes going for a ride for a few days.

    We think Maddy is Callum's dad's ex wife and he doesn't want to talk about it because it might upset Callum. (Hadley Duncan and Thomas Rm10mis)

    We think that Maddy is Callum’s dad’s ex-wife and hasn’t told anyone. The whole motorbike trip was properly to see Maddy.

  11. I loved this book. You are all so lucky to be reading it this term. I laughed my way all the way through it. I don't want to give anything away but Danielle, Jessica and Antonia, I think you are on to something!

    The surroundings of the crash were that Greg was going to fast and he wasnt concentrating on the road. He didn't see the car coming from the other direction.Only just missing the oncoming car Greg hit the bridge. Greg flew over the handle bars of his bike and fell down into the river. It looked like he was knocked out but by the time help got to him it was too late, he was dead.

    Callum tried to comfort his dad by saying nice things and saying "its all behind you now".

    Hello to all of Room 10 MIS. I have just been shown around your very exciting blog page. This is the first time I have ever looked at a blog page and I am most impressed. I loved being able to read the classes Mission Statement and see live photographs of my child and the children in their class. I will endeavour to visit this blog page more often and those of other classes at MIS. Well done Room 10!

  14. I think Maddy is Callum's aunty. The reason why I say this is because she was already there when they meet and she probably drove there in a car.
