World Book Day

We celebrate the joy of books, authors and reading for pleasure in our world book week.

Today we joined, Ben Shires and Konnie Huq live from Batley Library in West Yorkshire. We explored genre, characters and storytelling with amazing authors including Michael Rosen and Katie and Kevin Tsang.

Harriet Tubman

In English we have been writing our own non-chronological report based on Harriet Tubman.

We have written it in similar style to the book, “Children who changed the world”

We paid attention to the layout, language used in the text, formatting of headings and subheadings and the use of pictures and captions.

Creative Settings

We’re going to be writing our own version of Edward Tulanes Miraculous Adventure.

Today we were creative, thinking about the setting description for the memorable event. We talked about the writing process and how writers may have several thoughts before they choose their final one.
