We are continuing to read and base our creative work on 'Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone' for the beginning of the Spring Term. Last term, we wrote a formal letter of reply to Professor McGonagall, we wrote character descriptions and used these to write 'wanted posters' for Harry and Hagrid.
This term we will be unpicking the Sorting Hat Poem and will be writing our own version of the poem. The children will pick which Hogwarts House they think they would be placed in and write their own poem about each house.
Later in the term we will start reading, 'The World's Worst Children' by David Walliams.
Our guided reading text is, 'A Series of Unfortunate Events' by Lemony Snicket.
