Into the forest


We start the half term by reading a book called 'Into the forest' by Anthony Browne.


We've been learning how to use adverbs as starters, fronted adverbials, expanded noun phrases and direct speech.


We wrote a setting description of the forest which were fantastic. 


We continued to study this book and wrote our own narratives.

Chembakolli Report


To link with our India Topic, we researched a rural village in Southern India - Chembakolli. 


We discussed how Chembakolli is different to our own homes, looking at weather, housing, food and school life.


The children wrote up a report about life in Chembakolli.






Cloud Tea Monkeys


Cloud Tea Monkeys is a lovely story about a young girl who has to work at the tea plantation when her mother is sick. With thanks to the monkeys, who live in the mountains, she collects rare tea leaves which impresses the Royal Tea Taster when he visits. 


We looked at an image of the Royal Tea Taster and created wonderful descriptions looking at exciting vocabulary for colour, texture and appearance.
