My favourite book is Kensuke’s Kingdom by Michael Morpurgo. I must have read it five or six times and love reading it to my class. Michael goes on an incredible adventure sailing around the world with his family but disaster strikes. I love the adventure Michael has and there are some brilliant cliff hangers. It’s definitely a book you can’t put down.

I've found it impossible to narrow down my favourite book to just one! When I was growing up I absolutely loved the Famous Five; I wanted to join the children (and dog) on all of their adventures! I think Harry Potter is great (I like the third one best) and I'd love to visit Hogwarts one day. Michael Morpurgo has written some incredible stories, Kensuke's Kingdom is probably my favourite. Of course all of Roald Dahl's books are brilliant, I think George's Marvellous Medicine and The Magic Finger are the ones I most enjoy. I've always wanted to make a giant potion like George does in the story and see what would happen if I gave it to someone to drink!

I love reading using my kindle, especially before I go to sleep at night. I like lots of different genres of books from thriller and crime to books that make me laugh out loud. Gardening books are also a favourite, as I dream of all the lovely plants I could grow in my garden.

When the big things feel out of control focus on what you love right under your nose.’ - The boy, the mole, the fox and the horse. A book about living courageously with more kindness towards yourself and to others and to spread your wings and follow your dreams - this is my favourite book!

This term, as we welcome the children back, Phoenix class are taking on the science topic of animals including humans. This covers the different types of teeth, the human digestive system and food chains and food webs.

In geography the children will be learning the water cycle and in RE we look at why Christians call it Good Friday.

In our Maths lessons will we use the first couple of weeks to recap some of the learning from over lockdown and look at written multiplication and division and the fractions. Our next topic is decimals.
