This term the children will be using Brashem's Tortoise as their inspiration to write their own story in a genre of their own choice. They must use powerful imagery to build a picture of the setting in the readers mind. Prophets class will use drama and research techniques to draw together imaginative vocabulary and figurative language.




In our non-fiction writing this term, we will be writing a letter to lobby Parliament. The children will take on the role of ambassadors for animal welfare to inform and persuade the Government to take action again the illegal trade of exotic animals.
