To start the new term, we will be looking at the book "The Magic Paintbrush", by Julia Donaldson.
We will start by learning the story using story mapping in the style of Talk for Writing. Then we will look more in depth at the language and structure of the story, before finally using the structure to help us write our own wishing tale.
This term, the children have been learning about rainforests and why they are so important. The Great Kapok Tree is a fantastic book that is full of wonderful vocabulary and illustrations, but also gives a powerful message to the reader. Beech class have been rewriting their own version of the story that includes different animals and description.
