This summer term we have been enjoying reading the book 'The Abominables' by Eva Ibbotson. We have enjoyed hearing about the lives of the Agatha her relationship with Abominables in the mountains of Nanvi Dar.
We have been writing letters to father as if we were Agatha, explaining what happened to us when we disappeared.
This term we have been enjoying reading a selection of Greek Myths from the 'Theseus and the Minotaur' to 'Perseus and the Gorgons Head'. These short stories have been extremely enjoyable and we have particularly loved learning about the different Mythical creatures that many of the stories include. We even created our own Mythical creature which we used in our own Greek Myth.
We have been looking at the point of view of the characters Ariadne and Theseus and how they felt throughout the story. We have written some diary entires and letters to show this.
This half term we have been enjoying working with the book 'The Tear Thief'. This enchanting story is full of beautiful poetic language that is not only a pleasure to listen to but also allows us to pilfer ideas and use them in our own writing.
Fantastic Mr Fox
Our second book for this term was Fantastic Mr Fox by Roald Dahl. This is a great book that we have really enjoyed reading and getting to know its characters. We have used the events of the book to help us write a variety of different genres from diary as Fantastic Mr Fox himself to writing a letter to Mr. Bunce from Mrs Fox. We have enjoyed delving into this book, using lots of speaking and listening activities to help us understand the characters further.
During poetry day we loved listening to a variety of different of poems as well as performing a poem called 'You Can't Stop Me' by Miriam Moss. We hope you enjoy a little taster of our performance!
