Our class novel – My Dad’s a Birdman

This half term we are reading a class novel called My Dad’s a Birdman. The story is set in the North East of England in Newcastle. The story revolves around a family. The dad has sadly lost his wife and as a result is starting to act a little bit crazy! He wants to be a bird! Lizzie, his loving daughter and his sister Auntie Doreen support him. The city is holding a Human Bird Competition which of course Dad wants to enter. Will he make it across the Tyne? Who will be there to watch?

As a class we are going to have the opportunity to write a range of genres including character descriptions, diary entries, and newspaper reports.
