In this term we studied ‘Justino’ which is a Spanish animation about a security guard working night shifts. We wrote diary entries in the view of different characters.
As it was Remembrance Week we spent 3 weeks studying the War, comparing how life was 100 years ago compared to now and created our very own Newspapers.
On the run up to the Christmas holidays we looked at the famous John Lewis Advert ‘Monty the Penguin’ and wrote our own persuasive letters.
To celebrate Roald Dahls 100th Birthday we studied James and the Giant Peach. We looked at describing the main characters in detail; James, Aunt Sponge and Aunt Spiker, using similes and metaphors.
After studying James and the Giant Peach, we created our own story in the style of James and the Giant Peach.
E.g. Madison and the Massive Melon Nicole and the Peculiar Pineapple
Children produced excellent stories and used fantastic vocabulary and techniques.
We have studied Poetry and created our very own ‘Detective Tools’ for when we are spies.
