This term, Year 4 have been reading "The Whale" by Ethan and Vita Murrow.
There is a legend that a Great Spotted Whale lives in the ocean, although a sighting fifty years ago was never corroborated.
Now two young whale watchers each set out to find the whale, one armed with sound-recording equipment, the other with a camera.
When their boats collide, they pool their resources to capture incontrovertible proof that the mythical whale exists.
The eventual sighting is a magical moment, especially when the children discover that it was their own grandparents who first glimpsed the whale fifty years ago.
