Illustrations and more

Today we began to make our part of the whole school story come alive with illustrations. We worked with two Year 9 art pupils from Lavington to create some amazing illustrations. As well as this we starting writing narrative to go with the illustrations for our class book The Umbrella and we enjoyed the book swap.  Another great day for #bookweek2020.

Inside the Umbrella ☂

Before we opened our wordless book we were given special envelopes to open.  Inside were copies of the illustrations and we worked with our reading partners to sequence the story.  We had to look really closely at the illustrations to help us.

This afternoon we wrote questions to the illustrators of the book which Mrs Johanson is going to send onto the publisher.  Then we had a great time with Lime class where we shared our favourite book with them.

The Beginning of Book Week 2020

Today was the beginning of Book Week 2020.  In assembly Mrs Wren explained that this year the theme is all about illustrations and illustrators. Maple Class are looking at the wordless picture book “The Umbrella”.  We looked in detail at the front cover and made some predictions about what the might be about.

Instead of dressing up for World Book Day we are illustrating t-shirts of our favourite book.  We had a great time doing these today and can’t wait to wear them on Thursday and find out who the winner is.


As well as this we also contributed to the whole school story and included our mystery item of a Fairy Tale land map.  This afternoon we enjoyed walking to the mobile library and sharing our books when we got back to class.  Remember to come back tomorrow to see what else we’ve been up to.
