Mrs Heath

Welcome to Elm Class

Our book this half term is called 'Grandad's Island.' The story tells the tale of a boy and his grandfather adventuring to and from a mystery island, however when Grandad stays on the island Syd is left to navigate the world by himself. The children will be using this book as a stimulus to create a non-chronlogical report.
