Year 5 and 6s have an exciting Spring Term ahead. During the Spring term children will be reading The Boy in The Tower in English by Polly Ho-Yen

'When they first arrived, they came quietly and stealthily as if they tip-toed into the world when we were all looking the other way.'

From the seventeenth floor of the tower block where he lives with his mother, Ade watches as the buildings fall around him. The Bluchers - a strange and terrible kind of plant - are taking over the city, and everyone is being forced to evacuate, but his mother is refusing to leave her room. And so Ade watches alone as the city slowly empties, and the Bluchers creep ever closer.

What else will we be studying?
