In autumn term 1, we read Camile and the Sunflowers, which is a story all about Van Gogh. We used the text as a model for writing our own stories with dilemmas. We also wrote recounts about meeting our favourite famous people.
In autumn term 2, we read The Paper Bag Princess, which shows us that not all princesses need saving! We wrote our own fairy tales with a twist and non-chronological reports about dragons.
In spring term 3, we read Escape from Pompeii, which is a story set in Roman times, where two children escape from the eruption of Mount Vesuvius. We wrote our own stories with historical settings and newspaper reports about the eruption.
