This term we will be looking at the author Michael Morpago.
Last week we thoroughly enjoyed reading the story - The Fox and The Ghost King. The book is based on the Find of Richard III and the other big event in Leicester at that time...Leicester city winning the Premier league. The book is avaliable online to buy and is around £3 . The children loved it!!
