Our class text this autumn is 'Boy in the Tower’ by Polly Ho-Yen. This is an exciting science-fiction story about a boy and his mother and their struggle to survive in a city that is being taken over by strange fictional creatures called ‘Bluchers’. 

The book explores themes of mental health, friendship and survival and will be used as the basis for much of our guided reading and writing sessions.  The children will be developing their writing skills by writing diary entries, chronological and non-chronological reports, creative writing, poetry, lists/instructions, predictive writing and play scripts.
