More from Henry’s Freedom Box

Year 5 continue to produce excellent examples of vocabulary as they continue with their text ‘Henry’s Freedom Box’.

Are you able to read as a reader? What do these words and phrases suggest to you? How do they make you feel?

The class were amazed the story is based on a true account of a runaway slave!
