For the duration of the recovery curriculum; the children have been using Oliver Jeffer's Here We Are as a source of inspiration for their English writing since their return to school. So far, they have produced a poem about their favourite place, a letter to their favourite person or pet, a poster to encourage a more responsible attitude towards the environment and their own verse for the song What a Wonderful World.
We have also used Anna Llenas' The Colour Monster to encourage the children to use adjectives in order to write about and describe their feelings.
Our class text for this term is Clive King's classic novel for children: Stig of the Dump. This book will tie in beautifully with our Stone Age topic, we will also be comparing and contrasting it to the modern day classic Stone Age Boy, by Satoshi Kitamura.
