Finding themes in Oscar Wilde’s Fairy Stories
The girls chose to compare the stories The Nightingale and the Rose and The Remarkable Rocket with the theme of ‘Love’. The boys chose The Selfish Giant and The evoted Friend with the theme of ‘Selfishness’. The posters show key moments from the stories that reflect their chosen theme.

Old Age – Elsenham try some poetry of their own!
We are really enjoying Carol Ann Duffy’s poems and thought we would create our own. We looked at a picture of an elderly gentleman and thought we would share our poems about him with you.

Our questions about Little Bits of Sky
This book certainly got us thinking at Burnham on Crouch Primary. All the gladiators had lots of initial questions and we are looking forward to finding out the answers.
Line of fire
Our artwork for Line of fire
Designing our diary section for the Line of Fire. The children really loved reading this book and enjoying the pictures. They really felt they understood the impact of the war at the time and what is was like to be there.

Elsenham’s creativity flows
We have found this story very captivating and wanted to share our drawings with you.

A story like the wind has captured Elsenham Reading Gladiator’s imagination and we have begun our illustrations – Evie has made an outstanding contribution this week.
We just love reading and PAX!
Howbridge Reading Gladiators really enjoyed semantic mapping in our last session. We love to reason and explain our word choices using evidence from the text!
The thing about us is…we love reading!
Unfortunately, we didn’t get our Reading Gladiators group up and running in time to read the first book so we are kicking our year off with ‘The Thing About Jellyfish’. Let’s get reading!
