The Firework Maker's Daughter
This term, our key text will be 'The Firework Maker's Daughter' by Philip Pullman.
The text is about a young girl named Lila who wants to become a Firework Maker! Her journey to becoming one will lead her on an adventure across mysterious lands in order to obtain Royal Sulpher from a fire fiend! Our focus for the term will eventually lead us to create a non-fiction writing piece based on fireworks.
