Sedgley Park’s Map of Malkin’s Journey
Sedgley Gladiators created a 3D map of the journey Malkin went on!
We also discussed how we felt at different points in the story.
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.
Our poem based on the hurricane image. We hope you like it. 🙂
Cold howling winds whipped around trees,
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,
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,
Left in worrying darkness.
The trees snap.
Will the cat make it inside?
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!
The children presented their speech, as Malkin, to the rest of the group. Encouraging them to make friends with the Putrescibles.
Malkin Moonlight Journey map
St Paul’s Gladiators have loved Malkin Moonlight, and have made his journey into a spiral, leading into his home at the centre of the page and the end of the story. They have represented all of the animals he has encountered throughout the book. We are finishing off next week with a discussion about home and family and a think about the links between this book and Word of Mouse, which we also loved!!
St Marie’s Reading Gladiators have nearly finished Malkin Moonlight! We have had some fantastic discussions and have loved this story.
Malkin will do something important. What could this be?
Sedgley Park Gladiators are writing their ideas down!
Word of Mouse

Word of Mouse
Sedgley Park have been exploring the meaning of ‘family’.
