This month’s recommended read is ‘My Friend Walter’, by Michael Morpurgo. This book has been recommended by Mrs Hodges in Year 6. It is currently the Year 6 core text, which they will use throughout their literacy and topic sessions.
About the book:
‘Living with a ghost can have its difficulties, I discovered, even if he is your friend. Remember Sir Walter Raleigh, who laid his cloak in a puddle so that Queen Elizabeth I could walk across? Well, Bess meets his ghost and finds out he’s an ancestor.’
How will Bess explain Sir Walter to her family? Especially when he breaks her brother’s fishing rod, steals a horse and smokes cigars in her room!
