Children displayed their work relating to two novels written by Michael Morpurgo, The Butterfly Lion and Dear Olly.  In both novels children explored mature themes as they read about characters dealing with tragedy, loss and grief, belief, trust and hope through the context of relationships between humans and animals.

This term we gradually leave Michael Morpurgo behind to study other authors in different contexts in order to widen children’s horizons and continue to create a ‘reading culture’ in the classroom, school and at home.
