Year 5 Residential 


Class Novel

Our  class novel is  called 'The 1000 Year Old Boy'  which has been written by  Ross Welford. This is the blurb:  There are lots of stories about people who want to live forever.  This is not one of those stories.  This is a story about someone who wants to stop ...

Alfie Monk is like any other nearly teenage boy - except he's a thousand years old and can remember the last Viking invasion of England.  So when everything Alfie knows and loves is destroyed in a fire, and the modern world comes crashing in, Alfie embarks on a mission to find friendship, acceptance and a different way to live ... which means finding a way to make sure that he will eventually die.

 Doesn't it sound exciting?!
