Spring 2
Topic - Allotment.
Novel Study - The Girl of Ink and Stars.
 
 
Let’s grow. A crispy carrot, a luscious lettuce or a tasty tomato. Dig deep and put your back into it, making your own tubs and planters and nurturing your greens. Harvest your crops and make soups and dishes of seasonal foods that taste delicious. Learn about farms and where food comes from, writing reports on worldwide produce. Discover which allotments are closest to your school, and open the door to the secret garden. Then establish a farmers’ market, harvesting your crops and selling local produce. Include garden crafts and work out your prices. Be sure to make a profit, not a loss. After all that hard work, have your fingers gone green?

Novel Study - The Girl of Ink and Stars.

 

In literacy this term, we will be studying The Girl of Ink and Stars by Kiran Milwood Hargaves. The Girl of Ink and Stars by Kiran Millwood Hargrave is a magical book about friendship, adventures, myths and courage. When Lupe disappears into the Forgotten Territories, thirteen-year-old Isabella volunteers to help finding her. … But the journey is not easy and myths about the island become true.
 
In our literacy lessons, we will be exploring a range of text types, including newspaper reports, explanation texts, informal letters, setting and character description. Throughout this term, children will learn the importance of powerful verbs, adverbs and adjectives, complex sentences with a subordinating clause and fronted prepositional phrases for greater effect.
