Term 4

We have produced 'Knowledge Organisers' for some of our projects this term.  You can find them below.  Please use these to revise key knowledge with your children at home.

 

English

In English, this term we will be reading 'Wild Boy' by Rob Lloyd Jones.

 

 

 

Set in Victorian London, a young boy covered in hair has been condemned to life as an act in the travelling freak show.

The character, who has been raised as a monster his entire childhood, has an extraordinary power of detection.

 This rollicking adventure novel is full of intrigue, as Wild Boy and his friend Clarissa try to solve a series of murders in underground Victorian London.

This book has been regarded as the modern-day Sherlock Holmes – it is certainly sure to leave you perched on the edge of your seat.
