We are enjoying reading the story and we are learning lots of new vocabulary along the way.
At the moment Lila is on an adventure to retrieve the Royal Sulphur to become a real Firework Maker but she does not realise how dangerous this quest could turn out to be.
We have used the text in guided reading to develop our inference and summarising skills.
Our writing genre in Literacy is letter writing and we are busy writing informal letters from Lila to her father, explaining where she has disappeared to and her journey so far. Keep a look out for our finished work.
We can't wait to find out what happens when Lila meets Razvani and if she survives to tell the tale.
I think we need to look out for some more stories by Philip Pullman. Can you recommend any for us?
