Topic - Darwin's Delights
Novel Study - Wolf Wilder
 
 
We’re off on an exciting expedition with Charles Darwin and his crew on HMS Beagle. Can you trace his route across the vast ocean? Stop at the magical Galápagos Islands to see the amazing species that helped Charles Darwin to develop his theory of evolution by natural selection. Do you know what’s so special about a lava lizard, or why the blue-footed booby has blue feet? See how animals adapt to their environments over time and meet some of the world’s greatest explorers and naturalists. Imagine how humans will evolve in millions of years. It’s a scary thought. Ready to trace the origin of species? Let’s set sail.

Novel Study - Wolf Wilder

 

In English this term we will be exploring a range of text types, including: action scenes (3rd person, past tense), persuasive letters, instructions, prediction writing (writing an effective ending to a story), and newspaper reports. 
 

Once upon a time, a hundred years ago, there was a dark and stormy girl. Her name was Feodora. This is her story…

 

Our class novel is The Wolf Wilder - a deeply atmospheric and thrilling adventure story set in the snowy forests of Russia. We follow Feo, our fierce main character, as she embarks on a perilous journey to protect her wolves and free her Ma from the clutches of the wicked antagonist, Rakov. 

The Wolf Wilder is a challenging text, with strong themes of bravery and fighting against injustice/oppression. 

In spelling and grammar lessons, children will learn how to use a colon for dramatic effect, the power of verbs, and the importance of varying sentence lengths and types. Children will continue to develop confidence when switching between formal and informal writing.
