Y4 Essex (East)
We read some Amazon reviews of Little Bits of Sky and tried writing our own. We found it easier to write about what we did enjoy compared to the parts of the book we didn’t enjoy.

Coming to England
It was our final session on Coming to England today so we decided to create posters.
We had great fun remembering important parts of Floella’s experience.
Everyone loved the book and would recommend it!
We have looked at this book alongside Coming to England and talked about the differences between migrants and refugees. I’ve been so impressed by the children’s maturity and empathy while reading about sensitive topics.
Better late than never!

Thank you Just Imagine for our fabulous prize! From Year 4 Gladiators at Burnham on Crouch Primary.
Malkin or Isaiah??
We’ve really enjoyed Malkin Moonlight but the group is divided as to which book we prefer! We’ve studied characteristics and turned Malkin’s journey into a board game which we really loved playing!
Word of Mouse
Our very first mini challenge is complete! The children chose their favourite words of wisdom and drew pictures to represent them. They also decided that the name “Isiaiah the Adventurer” most suited Isiah because on his journey he experienced challenges, fear, excitement and sadness as well as learning so much about himself along the way. Much like a true adventurer, he found his true self.
Our first try at semantic mapping
Everyone has someone weird or annoying in the family, surely? 😄
Our reading journey has begun!
We enjoyed researching the urbane words that Isaiah used!
