Welcome to Year 3 and Autumn 2020

Miss MacSween, Mr Bull and Miss Beardsall



In English this half term we are focussing on the text 'Seal Surfer' by Michael Foreman.  It is the story of a boy and his grandfather who watch as a baby seal is born on the rocks near their home.  From that day a special friendship is created between them. Despite his disability, the boy is a keen surfer, and he enjoys many afternoons surfing with the seals. One day, however, he gets into trouble in rough seas, and the young seal saves him.  Does it sound like the type of story that you would like to read?
