Book of the Month

Our new book of the month for Summer 1 is 'Respect: The Walter Tull Story' written by Michaela Morgan. In assemblies this half term, the children will be listening to parts of the story and discussing the characters, plot, language and key messages to take away from the book. You might decide to buy the book for home so that you can enjoy the book with your child. As our core value this half term is, 'We are respectful', we have chosen a book which encapsulates the struggles some people face to gain respect in a world which is not always fair. We think this is such an important message for our children to learn.
