This week is the 'Reading is Magic' festival! On Monday, we attended a virtual assembly led by author and children's laureate, Cressida Cowell. She spoke about her writing process and her books from the 'How to train your dragon' and 'Wizards of once' series. She then gave tips for budding authors in the classroom! The children then followed her advice, creating maps of fantasy lands to inspire stories of their own!
Survivor: Escape from Pompeii
"This term, we have been reading the story 'Survivor: Escape from Pompeii' as our class novel. The children have really enjoyed this exciting story and it has given them lots of great vocabulary to use in their writing.
At the end of the book, there was an extract from another book in the 'Survivor' series, 'Survivor: Titanic'. A lot of the children were quite excited about this book and keen to read it, so here's a picture of it in case anyone would like to add it to Christmas lists!"
