Welcome To Year 3!
This term our WoW Topic is called 'Reign of Thrones'
Our key text for the first half term is 'The Butterfly Lion' by Micheal Morpurgo.
The inspiring magic of a white lion brings friendship and hope to a lonely ten year old. Miserable at his boarding school, Bertie runs away. He is rescued by a kind old lady who tells him of how another Bertie, a little boy from a long time before, saved an orphaned lion cub in Africa. The symbol of the white lion becomes an emblem of hope as well as a link across generations. Michael Morpurgo is skilful in weaving together magical and real stories.
Micheal Morpurgo was inspired to write this book by some of his boyhood memories. Please see below a link to a website that shows reviews of the book and has links to other books written by the author.
