Our Year overview

3 4L  Long Term Plan 23_24

Our next class book is called Escape from Pompeii- we will be working in English lessons on this book. 

Escape from Pompeii : Balit, Christina: Amazon.co.uk: Books

Join Tranio, the son of an actor, and his friend Livia, the baker's daughter, in witnessing the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in AD79. Tranio, like most Roman boys, likes to watch whatever is going on: tradesmen selling their goods, ships unloading their exotic cargoes, politicians making speeches in the forum. But one hot August day a very different scene unfolds. The ground begins to shake, the sky to darken. People run gasping for air. Heading for the harbor, Tranio and his friend Livia hide on a boat and witness one of the most terrifying moments in recorded history-the eruption of Mount Vesuvius and the destruction of their beloved city, Pompeii.

Our Class Reading Book is:  The Boy who Grew Dragons by  Andy Shepherd - we are really enjoying this funny book - we wonder what Tomas and Flicker are going to do next!

The Boy Who Grew Dragons (The Boy Who Grew Dragons 1) eBook : Shepherd,  Andy, Ogilvie, Sara: Amazon.co.uk: Kindle StoreTomas unexpectedly becomes the guardian of some freshly hatched fire-breathers when dragon fruit starts appearing on his grandad's tree in Shepherd's utterly enchanting, laugh-out-loud and heartwarming story.
