Have you ever wondered why our classes have unusual names?
Well, here at Byron we do all we can to promote reading. Each class has the honour of being named after a famous author. These authors have written one of the books on each of the year group book lists.
The children have found out more about their author and made sure they have read their class book.
Support your child by encouraging them to read the other books on their year group book list and other ones by their author.
