Whole Class Reading

In our 30 minute whole class reading sessions (four times a week) we will be focusing on the following text: Swallows and Amazons by Arthur Ransome.

 

Set in the 1920's - it's the summer holidays, and the Walker children - otherwise known as Captain John, Mate Susan, Able-Seaman Titty and Ship's Boy Roger - are excited to set sail on their boat Swallow and camp on Wild Cat Island. Exploring their new territory, camping in the open skies, swimming in the lake and fishing for their dinner would be adventure enough - but then they meet two fierce Amazon pirates who challenge them to a war.
