Summer Term

During the first half of the Spring Term we will be focusing our learning around the text Skellig. A strange creature - part owl, part angel, a being who needs Michael's help if he is to survive. With his new friend Mina, Michael nourishes Skellig back to health, while his baby sister languishes in the hospital.

During the second half of the Summer Term we will be looking at local geography linked to the text Floodland by Marcus Sedgewick. Global warming has caused the sea to rise until cities are turning into islands and civilization is crumbling. Ten-year-old Zoe Black was left behind on Norwich by accident when her parents escaped in the last supply ship to visit the island.
