    We have been thinking about following your dreams like Ossiri and how you can achieve anything if you believe in yourself.

    Hello everyone! You are very ogre-like in this picture but I know you are all lovely really. I enjoyed visiting you. I hope you like the next book.
    Jessica Leng 26th Jan 2018, 11:19am
    We think he ate him too.

    That looks like a lot of fun. What sorts of sounds can you make with your instruments?
    Jessica Leng 26th Jan 2018, 11:22am
    We made loud sounds, quiet sounds and peaceful sounds.

    We are designing instruments by collecting unwanted or used objects from our homes. We can't wait to share with you what we make.
  • Sharing Our Dreams

    Fairfield Gladiators enjoyed sharing their dreams in our session today. They also found it interesting to discover what their family members dreams were when they were younger.

    I expect you had a very interesting discussion with people at home. Hold onto your dreams Fairfield Gladiators.

    My dad's dream was to be an astronaut but it didn’t come true.
    Claudia Cotton 30th Jan 2018, 8:52pm
    We have just discussed our dreams at Whitefield today. Many of us discussed how we would like to be teachers as well as artists and piano players.
  • The Ogre

    In the middle we thought about what Ossirri thought about the Ogre before she met him. On the outside of the outline we thought about what Ossirri thought about the Ogre after she met him. We compared the collections of words.

  • Thinking about the orge

    We read the description of the orge from the farmer’s daughter. We drew what we thought he looked like and what we know about him at the moment. We thought about things we could infer from this description too.

    Here are SJSB Gladiators trying out the different ways snakes move. We had to guess which method our partner had chosen!

    Haha - a clever play on the title St Joseph and St Bede. I will be seeing Nicola Davies this week and will be sure to tell her about your super work.
  • Grey Island Red Boat Puppets

    For our homework challenge we made puppets for the two main characters. We enjoyed sharing them today before we began our new book.

    Lovely puppets and super smiles. It looks as though you have a lot of fun in your Gladiator group.
    Jessica Leng 19th Jan 2018, 10:42am
    We love your puppets. They are fantastic. Lola from Holcombe Brook.
  • Thankyou!

    After updating the Reading Gladiator website with our ideas and work, we were so lucky to win new books for our school worth £100. Thankyou! We have already read two of them as our end of the day story!

  • All Saints Primary School Whitefield

    We worked really hard today with our parents to make some shadow puppets.
    We are looking forward to making our own puppet shows now using the characters from Grey Island, Red Boat.

    How lovely that your parents came In to help with this activity. I think other schools might like to do the same thing.

    It is good and keep it up. From Ruby at Holcombe Primary.
  • Thought bubbles and shared reading

    At SJSB we wrote thought bubbles for our class Reading Gladiator journal. We enjoyed using question marks in our writing.

    Thought bubbles are a great way to pose questions. Do you think you will find the answers to your questions?
    Cat Lowe 19th Nov 2017, 6:27pm
    We really hope so! We are at the end of chapter 3, so it is a real mystery at the moment. We love the idea of the colour 'tickling our eyes'! :)

    We have read this book too. It is really good. Hope you enjoy it. Keep up the hard work. Thomas from The Holcombe Brook Gladiators.
  • Freeze Frames

    SJSB Gladiators freeze framed the action which took place in the book. We loved exploring the thoughts and feelings of the characters.

    Hello Holcombe Brook Gladiators. I am delighted that you enjoyed Grey Island, Red Boat. I wonder what you liked about it?
  • Predictions and changes

    We predicted what would happen and discussed how the book would change if the colours were different. We can’t wait to read Grey Island Red Boat at SJSB!

    It's interesting that something as simple as a colour choice can make such a big difference. Lovely work SJSB Gladiators.

    Very good. Keep it up. Imogen from The Holcombe Brook Gladiators.

    At St Joseph and St Bede we thought about how we feel when we think of these colours.
