Summer Term 2020


This term both of our focus texts are connected to the sea.  The first text is called the Storm Whale by Benji Davies.  Whilst reading this text, we will find out interesting facts about whales. 

Did you know whales are the largest mammals on Earth?  Whales are so unusual, they even have ear wax plugs! 





During our last second half term our focus book is called Billy's Bucket by Kes Gray & Garry Parsons.
