The Boy At the Back of the Class 

Onjali Q. Rauf 

A story of friendship, hope and the importance of kindness, The Boy at the Back of the Class is a story full of heart and humour, told from a unique perspective. Featuring illustrations from Pippa Curnick, this is an exceptional book by an emerging voice in children’s writing.

When a new boy joins their class, a group of children try to befriend him. They soon learn that Ahmet is a refugee and has been separated from his family. None of the grown-ups seem to be able to help him, so the friends come up with a daring plan, embarking on an extraordinary adventure.

Forest school sessions will take place  on a Wednesday. It is important that children have wellies in school  to be able to join in Forest School sessions. It would be a great idea to keep them in lockers for the term.
