Y4 Leopards have been reading Andy Shepherd's book, 'The boy who grew dragons' this half term and used the opening setting, which is an overgrown garden belonging to Grandad, as inspiration for their recent learning.
The Leopards were tasked with going out in to their own gardens to find natural resources to create their own overgrown, magical gardens. We then used these pictures alongside the magic of the book itself to write a poem using 4 of our senses. The Leopards then recorded their descriptive poems over their pictures and I'm sure you'll agree that they really do paint a picture in your mind of being in an enchanted place.

Our Battle of the Books Podcasts
As we continue to embrace new technologies, to inspire and engage our children and give them a purpose to their learning, we will be publishing a podcast of our Battle of the Books assembly.
This is a book review competition in the style of a boxing match! We are trying to promote a love of reading and books and what better way than the children telling each other which books they enjoy and why. The Podcast can be found on Spotify.
We hope you enjoy and are inspired to pick up a book.
This week is our first battle of the boys!
This week a children's classic goes head to head and toe to toe with a modern day master piece!
Two books by Jeff Kinney go head to head in our first Battle! Enjoy.
