Our next class read is: 'Small in the City'

Our next shared class reading is a book called 'Small in the City' by Sydney Smith. We love this book because it can be interpreted so many different ways, providing endless chances to discuss each part of the story.


Our first class read is: 'The Promise'

Our first shared class reading is a book called 'The Promise' by Nicola Davies. This story shows the changes that occur in a sad and miserable city. The city goes from misery to joy because of a kept promise.


Our first topic is: Street Detectives

In this topic, we will be learning about different places within our local area. We will also be exploring other world cities and looking at a key historical event: The Great Fire of London.
