Our Topic for Term 5 is 'Julia Donaldson'
We will be looking at a variety of Julia Donaldson’s books throughout the term and will focus on the stories of ’The Snail and the Whale’ and ’The Magic Paintbrush’. We will use these texts to develop our vocabulary choices, our story writing skills, our ability to make links between different books as well as creating our own moving story characters in our Art and DT work using a simple cam mechanism. As part of our Geography curriculum we will be looking at the different settings and environments within these books, looking at their key physical features and identifying their locations on a map. Lastly we will research the life of the famous author and seek to identify where her passion for writing began.
