In Year 6, we all participate in whole - class guided reading. This means that we all read the same book and complete learning that focusses on this book. As well as reading books, we often study other texts, for example non - fiction or Scripture, that informs other curriculum areas.

by Michael Morpurgo

Gracie and her friend Daniel have always been warned to stay away from the Birdman and his side of the island. But then they find a message in the sand and discover the Birdman is not who they thought. They build up a lovely friendship with him, but when the children get stranded on Samson Island they don’t know whether to believe the Birdman’s story that the island is cursed.
