English

 

This week in English we are reading a range of books and will think about what links we can make between them. The connections we make can be based on the characters, setting, title, author, horrible character, whether they involve magic, rhyme, the ending, whether the characters get lost, have a wedding, end happily ever after etc. 

 

So that we can make comparisons, we are going to read each book in detail and make simple notes. We will then compare two sets of books. The first are: Lost and Found, Augustus and His Smile, How to Catch a Star and Beegu (Please see book comparison sheet 1). The second group of books are: Jack and the Baked Bean Stalk, The Wolf's Story, The Twits and The Smartest Giant in Town (please see book comparison sheet 2). 

 

Below are some videos of the books. These comparison will take all week, with a few days for gathering evidence and then then remaining to complete the sheets. There is also a completed example attached below.
