The book that we are reading as a class is ‘The Queen of Darkness’.

Queen of Darkness: Boudica's army will rise... (Flashbacks)

This gripping story set during the life of Queen Boudica brings the Key Stage 2 history curriculum to life. Perfect for fans of historical adventure. Young Rhianna is relived when Queen Boudica takes in her and her sister when their parents die. But there’s a darkness in Boudica that’s waiting to be unleashed and the Romans will suffer for their crimes against her. Soon Rhianna witnesses much more than the kindness that Boudica has shown her and her sister. There’s a battle coming… and a terrible aftermath.

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