The book that we are reading as a class is ‘Stig of the Dump’.

Barney is a small solitary boy who loves exploring the dump at the bottom of a nearby chalk pit. One day, he discovers a cave-boy living there, who has made a house for himself out of junk. No-one believes Barney, but the two boys become great friends, learning a lot from each other and embarking on adventures. A story about an unusual friendship between a lonely boy and the Stone Age child he meets in a chalk pit, now considered to be a modern classic.

Lots of our literacy will be based around the book this term.
