LITERACY- This Summer term we will be discovering the importance of recycling and reducing our carbon footprint!

We will also be developing our comprehension skills by reading  'Michael Recycle' by Ellie Bethel, looking at extracts from the award winning book 'Spud Goes Green' by Giles Thaxton and 'Out of the Ashes' by Michael Morpurgo.
