Today Year 6 joined the ConnectED – Power of Reading session. We heard from two business employees who both work in Canary Wharf; one as a lawyer and one in property assets.
They discussed the power of reading in their jobs and where they are required to use reading in their professional life. Hopefully this inspired some of our Year 6s to think that they could work in jobs like this!

Your lucky day is here!
Check out this amazing (free) new book curated by Katherine Rundell (author of Rooftoppers and The Journey) and with contributions from Michael Morpurgo, Jacqueline Wilson, Anthony Horowitz and many other fantastic authors.
Today’s book is not one from my childhood but a more recently published book which is set during WW2. The book follows the story of a 10-year-old called Felix who is Jewish and lives in Poland during the time of Nazi occupation.
