World Book Day!

They open a door and enter a magical world…

(C.S. Lewis The Chronicles of Narnia – The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe).

For me books offer limitless possibilities.  What a line means to me may mean something completely different to my friend.

What did your imagination conjure up when you read the first line? The scent of bubbling chocolate; rotten fish heads and stale dragon eggs; dancing fire imps in the fire fiends cavern or somewhere only you can imagine?

Today is World Book Day, finding a book you love to read over and over again is magical.  Why don’t you share your thoughts, like we have, on why the book you’ve brought in captured your heart.

How to train your dragon

The children had such a great learning experience following Hiccup’s journey in Cressida Cowells ‘How to Train Your Dragon’. We created papier mache dragons, persuaded young Viking heroes to join the Hairy Hooligan Tribe and had a go at acting out the infamous speech by Gobber the Belch! Year 4 have been engrossed in this topic and it has been fantastic to see them buried into the book and desperate to read on to discover Hiccup’s destiny! Throughout this topic the children have met some interesting characters with bizarre names and personalities and the descriptive language and quirky content in this fabulous book has really pushed the children to expand their language choices! A thoroughly enjoyable topic for us all!
