What are we reading this term?


The Last Fire Fox 


Charlie would like to be braver; to not be scared by the geese in the park and to have the courage to stand up to the bullies at school. If he can't do that, how can he be a proper big brother to the new baby his two dads are hoping to adopt?


Then a magical door to another world brings him a Firefox which is under threat from a bad king and a monstrous shape-shifting beast. To keep the fox cub safe, Charlie must keep him a secret. But that's easier said than done when it has a tendency to burst into flames, with chaotic consequences.

Charlie must search his soul and overcome his fears if he's to succeed in his mission. But sometimes everyone needs a little help from their friends.


The fantasy and reality strands of this funny, heart-warming adventure provide wonderful contrasts. The genuinely scary beast is a constant, looming presence but the practicalities of hiding a flammable creature at school bring things right down to earth.



We will be using our Reading VIPERS to help us to answer questions.


These are the reading expectations for your children by the end of Year 4. It outlines the key skills they should know by the end of the year.



Reading is one of the most important things you can do to improve your education. You need to remember to read at least 3 times a week and write your reading down in your Reading Record. Your parents also need to sign to say they agree with the amount of times you are reading.


Parents, it is also helpful if you listen to your child read at least once or twice in a week just to check they are reading properly. Below there is a list of reading prompts questions to support you and your child reading at home.
