Literacy

Writers' Week

At the end of September, children from across the school spent a week looking at the work of some of Britain's most famous writers. Teachers and children alike had a wonderful time bringing to life these classic stories through drama, art, craft and writing. Click on the video links below to get a flavour of what each class got up to. 

Marmalade sandwiches were on the menu at Year 1's teddy bear's picnic. Paddington provided the inspiration for their week's work. 

In Year 3, the children found out what it was like for Mowgli, growing up with a family of wolves as he did in The Jingle Book. 

Things got a bit spooky in Year 5, where the children used the ghostly poem The Highwayman as a starting point for drama and writing activities. 

Year 2 sampled Winnie the Pooh's favourite food and then devised a plan to help him find some more at the the top of a tree!

Year 4 found themselves in some interesting places around school as they experiences life as The Borrowers - little people from under the floorboards. 

Year 6 spent the week exploring imaginary worlds such as Narnia. In one lesson, they had to persuade their classmates that they had been somewhere real, just as Lucy did when she came back through the wardrobe.
