Another Busy Night!
Reading fever is sweeping the school, inspired by our reading Gladiators who have been avidly promoting the new and improved school library. Book reviews by the Gladiators saw books such as Pax, Story Like The Wind and Carol Ann Duffy’s Poetry Treasury disappear from the shelves at record speeds. #inspiringothers #readtosucceed
Year 6 have explored the collection of Carol Ann Duffy’s poems and picked and performed some of their favourites. We love the variety and the chance to explore the rhythm and flow of each poem.
The challenge is to learn and perform two at Gladiators next week, and write a poem in the style of their favourite so far.
Well- what a stunning book we have this term. Two sessions in and we are hooked… some fantastic predictions demo year 6 in our first session as we linked this text to other texts and picture books we have read such as ‘The Journey’ and ‘Refuge’. #resilience

“For the moment, the war is far away. It hasn’t touched any of us terribly”.
The Churchfield Reading Gladiators discussed the quotation: 'For the moment, the war is far away. It hasn't touched any of us terribly'. We decided that although a war may be physically far away, it's actually a real and close threat and has an impact on everyone's lives. We tried to show this by placing a war scene so close to an idyllic, safe scene. The horse in its safe stable could easily end up a victim on the battlefield. The children are naively heading towards the danger, believing they are safe... We couldn't resist including Cecily, May and Jeremy and we made a few other references to 'The Children of the King' in our artwork.
