I predict that the special visitor is Captain Tom because captain Tom is a special captain.
Great work Candice.
ENGLISH – READING
I think the special visitor is a Animal Keeper, so he looks after animals.
Also he may have pets of his own.

Dear Mr and Mrs Smith,
I hope you are all well and in good health, we have moved into the new house in Northampton. The house is extremely huge, and i have my own room. Brooke has her own room as well, mummy and daddy have a shower room of there own. We also have a nice garden were i and Brooke play football. Our house has a nice living room, which daddy has put a huge TV in. We watch lots of movies as a family when everybody is free from doing stuff. We have a attic that i and Brooke go up to get things for mummy and daddy it is very fun; as there is a very long ladder that i and Brooke like to climb.
I have started my new school, which is very nice and made a lot of friends. School is not to far as well.
Okay i am going to go outside and play with Brooke in the garden.
