In the second part of this half term, we are looking at Bill's New Frock by Anne Fine.


Bill Simpson wakes up to find he’s a girl, and worse, his mother makes him wear a frilly pink dress to school.

How on earth is he going to survive a whole day like this? Everything just seems to be different for girls . . .


We are looking at the story of The Firebird by Saviour Pirotta

The legendary firebird has been stealing King Vaslav's golden apples - how can he
catch this dazzling thief? With the help of the King's overlooked youngest son, and
a mysterious wolf, the mystery of the firebird is unravelled. This is a spellbinding
retelling of the original Russian folktale that inspired Stravinsky's famous ballet,
illustrated with the stunning paintings of artist Catherine Hyde.
