The children are loving the book Sky Hawk by Gill Lewis.
Sky Hawk is set in a small farming village high in the mountains of Scotland. It begins with a meeting between three boys who seem, at first, to be quite irritating and childish, especially Rob who is a bit of a show-off, and Iona, a girl who has returned to the village to live with her grandfather who is almost an outcast in the village.
Year 6 can’t wait find out what Iona’s secret is ; I suppose we’ll just have to wait until we’ve read a few more chapters? The children have been making interesting and valid predictions, based on evidence from the text.
Gill Lewis is the author of many animal fiction books. I’m sure the children would love to go on and select one to read.
