Read Along With Mrs Lewis
Over the next few weeks, I am going to read ‘The Fire Maker’s Daughter’ by Phillip Pullman.
Your child can read this chapter at their own pace as the week’s activities will be based on chapter one. Your child may be able to read this alone or may need support with reading the text, but either way is fine.
