Literacy and language

Written by Mrs Williams

On Tuesday 1 March, Year 5 learnt a lot in literacy.  We read the story THIS IS NOT A  FAIRY TALE. We had to record our feelings in pictures, words and phrases. There were characters such as the Waggletooth Witch , the Black bear who likes to eat chicken drumsticks more than humans. There were the Trolls of Tiddly Crag who don’t like being called cute, and the Giant Man Eating Unicorn That Nobody Had Ever Seen. Then there is the Princess Ramona, beautiful as the sunset who does not want to be rescued because there are all those monsters lurking down there and she didn’t want to tear her dress.

Want to know more? It’s a book by Jeremy Strong. Year 5 love his books!
