Talk 4 Writing

Oak Class have been learning the story of Zelda Claw and The Rain Cat. As a part of the Talk 4 Writing Process we went outside and acted out the story and discussed how the character behaved and felt.

The children thoroughly enjoyed acting out and creeping around in the woods!  We have been learning each part of the story- Photos/ videos to follow!

Drama in the woods!

Reading outside the classroom!

Spring 1

We are reading the story The Abominables by Eva Ibbotson. As a part of this we have already created newspaper reports. We will go on to create our own information text about Yetis. Then onward to information texts about Polar animals.


In guided and shared reading sessions we will be studying the story Wolves of Willoughby Chase by Joan Aiken. We will study the language, structure, inference and deductions, make summaries and predictions. 

Oak enjoy role play as Polar Explorers!
