Read the extract from the opening passage of a Medal for Leroy.
Michael Morpurgo includes a postscript in his story about Walter Tull and about the hidden secrets which many families have: 

"I think it's true that many of us, certainly me, are fascinated to discover more about the lives of our parents and grandparents and even our great grandparents, because like it or not, they make us who we are."
                                                                              Morpurgo, 2012

    I am a Teaching Assistant working with Year 5 and 6 pupils. I am interested in seeing how children engage with great books and get inspired to talk and write about the ideas they discover.
