Malkin Moonlight Map
Mortimer St Mary’s made a map showing Malkin’s journey.
Word of Mouse!
Our Reading Gladiators loved designing and drawing their mini challenge quotes and information. We love mice!
The cover of our memory book is like the front cover of Little Bits of Sky. Each gladiator painted a favourite memory for Ira and Zac.
Words to describe the mayor.
I asked the Gladiators to think of words to describe the mayor then we talked about the words that best described him. We then put the words on our dartboard. The words closest to the bullseye are the ones we thought best described him. I think you’ll agree the words they came up with were superb. Very proud 😊
The Boy, The Bird and The Coffin Maker
Our interpretations of what we think the mayor looks like.
St. Mary’s is delighted to be welcoming Nikki Gamble to our school tomorrow.
Is it possible Malkin helped Plop (from The Owl who was Afraid of the Dark) to understand that dark is magic?
My Year four Gladiators and I like to think so.
Poem written by the Reading Gladiators from the book ‘Hurricane’
The forceful winds were devastating and blowing crazily.
The leaves whirled around roughly and spread across the strange sky.
Wrenching all the trees up and smashing all the cars, the hurricane rumbled America.
The brutal, savage, deafening wind annihilated the landscape, the hurricane was petrifying and hateful.
The hurricane created havoc and destruction, it was deadly.
The lethal destruction scarred people’s lives, there was no hope.

Opening our envelope of predictions which we sealed during our first session of reading Malkin Moonlight. Some very accurate predictions although a lot of us thought he would be reunited with his siblings like Isaiah.
Working as a team.
We finished Malkin Moonlight
We finished reading Malkin Moonlight yesterday and we all loved it so much that we talked about how much we would love to see a sequel all about the adventures of Malkin and Roux’s children!
Also, we really enjoyed meeting Nikki yesterday – thank you very much for visiting – all of the reading gladiators thought it was great to meet you!
St. Mary’s Reading Gladiators
Our new Reading Gladiators are loving the mini challenge. They have loved the first two books and have been drawing lots of similarities between the two books.
Word of Mouse Pictures
Kasey drew a fantastic picture based on one of the quotes from word of mouse: ‘The cure for fifty enemies is one friend.’
We all thought her picture was fantastic!
