Luke is a comic-mad eleven-year old who shares a treehouse with his geeky older brother, Zack. Luke's only mistake is to go for a wee right at the wrong time. While he's gone, an alien gives his undeserving, never-read-a-comic-in-his-life brother superpowers and then tells him to save the universe. Luke is massively annoyed about this, but when Zack is kidnapped by his arch-nemesis, Luke and his friends have only five days to find him and save the world...
This book had me howling with laughter from start to finish, I can't wait to read others in the series.

Reading and Writing ideas:
In English this half term we are focusing on a book called Here Comes Charlie Moon by Shirley Hughes. As well as writing in a number of different forms over the unit, we will build towards an end piece; which will include writing a newspaper article and a letter home to parents (from a long holiday away)
The skills we are focussing on in writing are:-
- Use present and past tenses correctly and consistently
- Use subordination (because, when, that)
- Use punctuation correctly (fullstops, capital letters, exclamation marks, question marks)
- Use apostrophes for possession
If you wish to practice writing at home with your child during this time, it will be useful for you to focus on some of the above skills.

Cabin Fever? Then take a look at this!
The world’s best known survival expert (Bear Grylls) is launching a package of 100 indoor activities to keep families “busy, focused and cheerful” and ward off cabin fever during the lockdown.
After the closure of schools millions of families will be cooped up indefinitely and Grylls, the chief scout, is warning that without a plan, “a week stuck at home for a family can be as tough as a week in the mountains”.
Grylls, a former soldier, is launching the Great Indoors initiative with the Scout movement. They will be fronted by Grylls and scout ambassadors, including the TV naturalist Steve Backshall and Helen Glover, the double Olympic rowing champion. Have a look at the link below for some more details!
