 Thursday 4.3.21

Good morning Peregrine! :)

At the weekend, Mr Whisker and I went for a very long walk and noticed many more signs of spring including hares pairing up, a wasp and lambs, three of which followed us right across a field bleating for food!

How many signs of new life can you spot during your time outdoors today?

Our English session today will mark World Book Day in a different way, but we will be celebrating it in our usual manner in the future as promised by Mr Watson. SO -

I have recorded readings of two of my favourite books for you to listen to and enjoy:

Listen to Book One

Listen to Book Two

Now I would like you to think about one of your favourite books and write a book review that shows why you like it so much and encourages other people to read it. Use this template to share your thoughts.

Next I would like you create a character description from your chosen book. You will need to draw the character first, then annotate it with characteristics - remember these should be more about the way your character behaves, thinks and feels and less about the appearance.
Here are images of my two character descriptions to help you:


I am so looking forward to reading your book reviews and character descriptions - please send them in!

Finally, share your book, or excerpts from it, with a family member - see if you can persuade them to read it too!

Check out the World Book Day website and today's live event:
