“There is more treasure in books than in all the pirate’s loot on Treasure Island.” – Walt Disney


In Reading and English we will be exploring a gripping Roman adventure told by a young North African girl who sets out on a danger-filled journey to Britain. When, Camilla, a young North African girl travels with her mother and father from Leptis Magna to Rome in 207 AD, she believes that she is going to the centre of the world. A story I hope grips you all to the edge of your seat!


We will be using this text to help guide us through lots of genres of writing! The first genre we are embarking on is creating a diary entry from the perspective of Camilla! Keep your eyes peeled for this, it is going to be fantastic! 




These are the Year 3 and 4 common exception words. How many can you already read and spell? 



We will read, listen to and discuss a range of different types of texts! These will include; fiction, poetry, plays non-fiction and textbooks. We will build on the skills and knowledge that we learnt in Key Stage One by making sensible predictions, thinking about the author's choice of language and using the text to draw inferences on characters' feelings, thoughts and motives, as well as other aspects of reading!
