Y4 Bristol and Somerset
Without giving away the story, in one part, Ira discovers a letter. She replies and hides the letter to be found by someone else. Our Gladiators decided to write their own letters ‘to whom it may concern’ and have hidden them in secret locations. One girl was happy to share her letter. We thought other schools might like this idea too.
Memory Book Challenge
Yes I am one of those teachers who got the book order muddled so we have just finished ‘Little Bits of Sky’. The group absolutely loved collaborating on making a Memory Book as if Ira or Zach. They used lots of collage art ideas as they felt it was a very special book and deserved special effects! We look forward to submitting the finished book for the next mini challenge.
Year 4 Reading Gladiators from St.Teresa’s
We were very lucky to spend an afternoon with David John, who came from Trinidad to be a professional rugby player. He told us all about his life in Trinidad and his move to England.
We’ve loved the description so much in this book. We were a bit shocked when Wansdyke’s beady-eyed Hayah spotted a grammatical error on page 35. Did anyone else pick it up? !

We found our own ways to record thoughts.
4B are busy reading Malkin Moonlight. We have been discussing similarities and differences between this book and ‘Word of Mouse’ as well as a class text, Varjak Paw. Today we talked about ‘sixth sense’ .

We are really enjoying this first book. Our favourite character is Hailey (and obviously Isaiah!) We simply cannot put the book down.
