The Newcomer Set 1 by David Orme, Helen Orme

Maddison is a new student at the school. Everyone tries to help her settle in, but it's just not working. What is the problem? The Newcomer is part of the Streetwise reading series. 'Streetwise' covers key PSHE (personal, social and health education) topics with each book featuring a short story highlighting a single topic, accompanied by discussion points and writing ideas in the back of each book. Each story is short enough to enable a topic to be covered in a single 20 minute lesson. Streetwise is published by Ransom Publishing, a specialist publisher for reluctant and struggling readers. It is ideal for readers aged 11+ with a reading ages of 10+.

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to
