This term we are studying a lovely book called 'The Tin Forest' by Helen Ward. We are really enjoying this book and wrote some beautiful descriptions of both the tin forest and the colourful forest.
Man on the Moon by Simon Bartram
To link with our History topic, we are looking at a lovely story called Man on the Moon by Simon Bartram. This story is all about Bob and his day-to-day life, which is quite unusual because Bob works on the moon!
For our author study this term we looked at an author called Oliver Jeffers. He’s written lots of wonderful books that we explored and discussed.
We especially enjoyed reading ‘How to Catch a Star’. We thought of our own ingenious plans for how to catch a star and used these to write our own versions of the story.
Whilst looking at Oliver Jeffers, we thought about how we could use adjectives, adverbs and similes to make our writing even more exciting.
Alongside learning all about this spectacular ship in History, we have also been writing about it in our English lessons.
We started off by writing a fabulous description of what it was like on board the Titanic. We thought of really interesting adjectives that we could use in our writing and how different adjectives could help us to describe each class in detail.
We loved writing a newspaper report telling everybody about the tragic marine distaster that took place in April 1912 because we were able to become journalists and write a detailed timeline of events.
We all know the story of the three little pigs, but have you ever wondered what the true story is?
2L have been reading 'The True Story of the 3 Little Pigs' by Jon Scieszka. This story is the story of Alexander T Wolf (a.k.a The Big Bad Wolf). Alexander T Wolf claims that blowing the 3 Little Pigs' houses down was all an accident so we decided to find out the truth.
2L became detectives. We looked at all the evidence of both stories and wrote a letter to Chief Inspector Dogood explaining what we found out.
