For Mr Tatton's and Miss Boulton's classes we would like you to look at the front cover of 'Race to the Frozen North' and predict what you think may happen within the story! We would like you to pick out at least four key points within the front cover, for example the ship or the dog sled and explain how these may be used within the story.

 

For Miss Flackett's class we would like you to look at the front cover of 'Billy and the Minpins' and predict what you think may happen within the story!
