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

    I really enjoyed my visit to your school today. Thank you for making me so welcome. What a super 3D mao you made for Malkin Moonlight. Well done everyone. I look forward to seeing you at the challenge day in the summer.
  • Malkin Moonlight

    The Year 4 children at St. Luke’s Primary School acted out a scene from Malkin Moonlight. They planned their scenes and acted them out in front of one another. They were thinking about how Roux accepted Malkin for who is is, despite being a stray. This sparked interesting conversations from our Gladiators about acceptance and giving everybody fair and equal chances.

    This looks like thoughtful, interesting and enjoyable work. Have you acted your scenes out for other children in your class?

    Christ Church Walshaw Primary School have looked at your post and think the drama is a very creative idea.
  • Hurricane Poem

    Our poem based on the hurricane image. We hope you like it. 🙂
    Hurricane Poem

    Cold howling winds whipped around trees,
    Swaying violently,
    Dark green leaves rushed through the garden,
    Seeds and stones tossed all about,
    Midnight blue called the scares,
    To rise like a windstorm.

    Cosy and warm inside,
    Bright lamplight,
    A shining bright star,
    Beautiful bright heart-warming glow,
    Of the friendly fire,
    Should feel grateful,
    But feeling worried.

    Cat begging to come in,
    His world silent,
    He feels despair,
    Sadness,
    No hope,
    Left in worrying darkness.

    The trees snap.
    Will the cat make it inside?

    Thank you for sharing this Fairfield Gladiators. We love the poem and we are worried for the cat. Except, as we know, they have nine lives. So I am sure all will be well.

    Fantastic Poem. I think that you should have won. I also think it is better than ours!! From Sedgley Park Y4 Reading Gladiators.
  • Hurricanes

    This week, during our Reading Gladiators book club, we created an acrostic poem for Hurricanes. We brainstormed all of our ideas based on the front cover and what we already know and think about hurricanes. Thisg has made us extremely excited to read it in our next session. We hope you enjoy!

    Brilliant! Some great vocabulary here. Have you tried reading it to the hurricane soundscape in the resources section?

    I really enjoyed reading this. I liked the idea that while chaos is raging you are safely tucked up inside.

    I love how you did an acrostic poem. It was a really good idea and I think it is so creative
