'Believe to Achieve'


Week Three

4B have finished their World's Worst Children book this week! We discussed our favourite character, and created our own interpretation of them. We also read Ada Twist: Scientist and discussed gender stereotypes.

Week Two

4B have been thoroughly enjoying their DEAR book- World's Worst Children. We have met Dribbling Drew, Grubby Gertrude, Nigel Nit-Boy and Peter Picker. During our love for reading sessions this week, we followed on the revenge story for Nigel Nit-Boy and wrote newspaper reports which explained how Peter Picker caused chaos across the globe!

Week One

4B started and finished their first DEAR book this week! As we had read The Boy at the Back of the Class in the autumn term, we chose to read the sequel- The Day We Met the Queen. We really enjoyed this book and decided to create our own invitations from the Queen inviting the children for a special afternoon tea, just like in the book!


We also started our second DEAR book- The World's Worst Children. We thoroughly enjoyed The World's Worst Teachers last half term so decided this would be our next book. We even created our own world's worst children with traits that we thought might appear in the book. e.g. a child who never washed, a bully and even a son of two of the world's worst teachers!

In the Picture News this week, we found out that our focus author Cressida Cowell has written a letter to Boris Johnson asking for £100million to fund school libraries. We discussed why libraries are so important in schools and came up with the following ideas:


- Some families cannot afford books.

- There are books suitable for all ages.

- You can get lost in a good book.

- You are surrounded by adventures.

- You can escape the world and become stuck in a book.

- Libraries can help you to learn new words.

- Reading is the top recommended hobby.

- It can help you develop a love for reading.
