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!
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.
