The start of a new school year at Michael Faraday has seen the return of an incredibly popular character. Skellig is once again causing much confusion in Year 5 as the pupils attempt to find out a little more about this fascinating fictional character.
Who is he? What is he? And what are the motivations of Skellig in the brilliant book by David Almond?
Year 5 have just started to read this book and so far have been introduced to the main characters. The pupils have been thinking about how the plot might develop, as well as a little more about Skellig and how he can best be understood. All pupils have produced some written work to capture their early thoughts on the Skellig book. You can listen to some of these ideas being explored in the audioboo below.
