In English, we are reading The Unforgotten Coat by Frank Cottrell Boyce. The story is about two Mongolian brothers who move to Bootle. To get into the character of the brothers we imagined what it would be like to try pickled onion Monster Munch and Sunny Delight for the first time just like the brothers did in the book. We used this to help us write some very descriptive pieces.
We also imagined what it would be like to be the brothers arriving new in Bootle by asking them questions and finding out about their journey from Mongolia.
As we have been studying the Egyptians, we have written some fabulous Egyptian stories. We also learnt all about the mummification process on our Walk Like and Egyptian Day and wrote detailed instructions for how to mummify a dead body.
In English we’ve been reading the BFG by Roald Dahl. Take a look at some of the fabulous dreams we’ve written and dream jars we made.
This half term we learnt about rivers in geography. We used this to inform some of our writing in English. We’ve been researching the journey from source to sea and wrote some fabulous chronological reports retelling the river journey.
This term we have been reading the book My Brother is a Superhero by David Solomons. This is a very popular children's book at the moment winning the Waterstones Children’s Book Prize 2016 and featuring on Tom Fletcher's WHSmith children's book club list - watch the video here to find out more about his book club!
My Brother is a Superhero
We're really enjoying reading and acting out the first few chapters of the book to really get into the mindset of the characters. Here are some photos of us pretending we are Zack (the superhero) and his younger brother Luke during some of our favourite parts so far.
We're even more excited because David Solomons the author of My Brother is a Superhero has replied to our tweet!!
No Pens Day Wednesday
We’ve been thinking about Luke’s feelings for our diary entry this week. On No Pens Day Wednesday we acted out some of our favourite scenes.
