This term we will be reading a new book called Beowulf, it is a book based in Denmark in 400AD. I don't want to give too much away but this is a fantasy adventure book and I am sure you will enjoy it. As always, when we start a new book we will be writing down our predictions. This is a great skill to practise and it will help you grow your imagination and thinking skills. 

Please don't worry, I will continue to read The Animals of Farthing Wood for you to enjoy and I will post a chapter daily under the 'Books' tab on the website.
