Each week you will be given a short book to read from the Oxford Owl website. You will need to have read the book by the Thursday meeting and at the meeting we will discuss what you linked or did not like about the text and answer any questions that you may have.
 
This week we will be looking at the Thumbelina, a very famous story which has been retold by Michael Foreman. This is the story of a tiny little girl called Thumbelina who travels through a forest, looking for a home, and meets lots of inquisitive creatures along the way.
