The Jolly Postman or Other People's Letters

The Jolly Postman or Other People's Letters written by Janet and Allan Ahlberg. http://youtu.be/gpeo_0yoD0k

The Jolly Postman

We read the Jolly Postman in class. 

We wrote letters and postcards and even wrote a letter to the Prime Minister, Boris Johnson. We got a reply!

 

Non fiction - Non chronological reports

We looked at of leaflets and posters about Preston. We did research on the internet and found out all about things to do in our city. This was part of our local History and Geography work too.

     

We then wrote non chronological reports about our wonderful school. Mrs Wright was so impressed that she gave them to new parents at our open day event!

    

 

 

Stories with a twist

We loved reading and performing traditional tales with a twist. We were so inspired that we wrote our own to put in a frame in our library area. We are looking forward to seeing a twisted tale at the theatre next year!

The True Story of the 3 Little Pigs | Children's Books Read Aloud

You may think you know the story of the Three Little Pigs and the Big Bad Wolf - but only one person knows the real story. And that person is A. Wolf. His tale starts with a birthday cake for his dear old granny, a bad head cold and a bad reputation.

Poetry- Autumn poems

We read and listened to lots of different poems. Linked to our Science work on seasonal change, we collected Autumn words and wrote our own poems. 

Non fiction - Instructions

We received a letter from Father Christmas saying his elves had run out of fun games to play! Our challenge was to design new games and leave them instructions to follow!

                 

 

Fiction- Stories by Anthony Browne

We have REALLY enjoyed reading so many of Anthony Browne's books, talking about the themes and linking the stories to others that we know and love. We were inspired to write our own adventure stories based on 'The tunnel'. Some of us read them out to our friends.

   

Non fiction- We used the content's page, index and glossary to find information about the Arctic and Antarctic. We made notes and found facts that we thought were interesting. We used Word hippo to understand new vocabulary and also as a thesaurus.
