Shackleton's Journey by William Grill.

 

Endurance narratives: During this half term, the children will study how to create suspense during a fictional text. They will draw on their knowledge of descriptive writing and combine this with a range of sentence structures (such as those involving commas and semi – colons) to create an engaging and thrilling narrative based on Ernest Shackleton and his incredible journey in Antarctica.  Come back soon to see their amazing work! 

 

Hansel and Gretel by Neil Gaiman

 

The children began their journey into this book by immersing themselves in a woodland environment. They hunted for clues in the adventure area and eventually followed a trail of breadcrumbs which led them to learn the title of the book. 

 

The children have since studied the main characters in detail and have produced some fantastic dual narrative texts.
