Guided Reading

In term 2, we will be applying all of our VIPERS skills as we read 'Cosmic' by Frank Cottrell-Boyce

Even though he’s only 12, Liam is constantly mistaken for an adult. His inquisitive nature and adult appearance often get him into trouble.

When Liam wins a competition to try out the world’s greatest thrill ride, he and his friend Florida are whisked away to Infinity Park in China by the mysterious Dr Drax. The friends find themselves competing for the chance to be sent into space; soon Liam is playing a grown-up in a situation that his dad can’t save him from.



In term 2, our writing will be inspired by 'The Jamie Drake Equation' by Christopher Edge.

How amazing would it be to have a dad who's an astronaut?

Rocket launches, zero gravity, and flying through space like a superhero! Jamie Drake's dad is orbiting the Earth in the International Space Station and Jamie ought to think it's cool but he just really misses him...

Hanging out at his local observatory, Jamie picks up a strange signal on his phone. It looks like alien life is getting closer to home. But space is a dangerous place and when his dad's mission goes wrong, can Jamie prove that he's a hero too?
