Summer Term


This superb and beautifully illustrated collection contains 16 popular Greek myths retold in rich but accessible storytelling language. We will follow the adventures of Jason, Theseus, Odysseus, Icarus, Arachne, King Midas and many more heroes and heroines of Ancient Greek mythology.









Following on from this, sticking to the theme of heroes, we will read Krindlekrax - a story on an unlikely hero, Ruskin.

It begins with the search for a hero for the school play.

Ruskin Splinter wants to be that hero! Unfortunately, the very idea he could defeat the Dragon in the school play makes everyone laugh. But in the vast sewers of Lizard Street something is stirring. Something called Krindlekrax. And, before long, Ruskin will be testing his heroic qualities…for real.
