  • Little Bits of Sky

    We have absolutely loved Little Bits of Sky! We have been captivated by the journey Ira and Zac have been on and are thrilled that they got the happy ending they deserved. In our group, we each took an important part of Ira’s life and create a page of a memory book reflecting what happened. We didn’t just discuss the positive parts. We spoke about how, growing up, it is important to remember the sadder times in life as this helps us cope with further sadness and helps us get over stumbling blocks quicker!

    ‘Hurricane Hurricane’

    We used our voices and bodies to capture the effects of a Hurricane. We used ideas from the book to help us. We hope you enjoy watching our video.

    Malkin Moonlight’s Journey

  • Malkin Moonlight Journey Map

    St Paul’s Reading Gladiators have loved reading Malkin Moonlight, and have made his journey into a spiral shape, leading into his home at the end and featuring all of the creatures he has encountered on the way.

  • Malkin’s Journey

    We mapped Malkin’s Journey. We thought the key places that he visited and what they meant to him. We thought of the different mediums of art that we would like to use. We used oil pastels, water colours, Pom-poems, paper and lots more to create our map. Jason said “I felt surprised when Malkin met Roux because he was a stray. Roux was so kind and loving and did not focus on their differences.” Cerys said, “The story has made me about how we should get to know people before judging them.” Bassam said “we should never judge a book by its cover.” We have really enjoyed reading this text a lot.

  • St Paul’s: Word of Mouse

    St Paul’s Reading Gladiators have loved Word of Mouse and really loved choosing a quote from Isaiah. The children chose their favourite, wrote it beautifully and illustrated it. Our display is above our class book shelf, and lots of the class have commented on it so far!!

  • Reading Display

    The children throughly enjoyed creating their own display independently. They wanted to make it interactive so they included a bin bag(black mountain) that contained their favourite quotes. They have been encouraging other children in the class to pick them out and read them. Some of the children have read other James Patterson books and have included them as recommendations.

    We decided to make a coffin fit for the Mayor. Seventy inches by seventy inches. We could all fit in at once!

    Super reference to the Great Storm here. The perfect cross-referencing opportunity with Weisner's Hurricane.
