    The children all responded in the way they wanted – a review, pictures, comments on their favourite parts, a diary, a synopsis. They ‘aged’ them using their own invented techniques! I will email further photos

  • Preparing our radio adaptation

    Having a lot of fun experimenting with sound effects for our mini-challenge – it’s amazing the different neighing sounds we can produce!

    I'm looking forward to this. Dialogue and sound effects are going to be very important for this audio version. Will you include any music?
  • Reasons why you should read Pax

    Year 6 Gladiators have come up with reasons why you should read Pax. This poster will be put up in a reading area to persuade others to pick up the book and read it.

    Super idea to create a poster and display it for other children to read. I especially like the idea that 'kindness can happen anywhere in the world' is one of the messages that you took from the book.
  • Feeling emotional after reading chapter 1 of Pax!

    Today, at Greenways we have started to read Pax. By the end of chapter 1, we were all looking around at each other with a sad expression on our face. After spending some time talking about our own animals, we felt so upset that the fox had been left in the woods!

    Hello Greenways Gladiators. I wonder if Pax will be able to cope in the wild? And what will Peter do without his fox? It's certainly a story which starts with lots of problems.

    Hi Greenways Gladiators from Edwards Hall Gladiators. There were some really sad moments in Pax, weren't there. What has been your favourite book so far?

    Buckle up for a roller-coaster of emotions Greenways. I'm sure you'll support each other through the highs and lows of the beautiful Pax - and I know you'll agree it was worth it when you get to the end.

    Loving the sleep over session. I think I need to go and snuggle up with a good book!

    Pleased to hear it Blenheim! From one brilliant author to another. I am sure Jellyfish will not disappoint. You may need a box of tissues along the way though!

    Brilliant. You might want to go straight on to Line of Fire after The Thing About Jellyfish book so that you can take part in the mini-challenges and come back to Pax later.
