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!
