We are poets

Date: 22nd Jan 2021 @ 5:09pm

Katherine Rundell co wrote a book called 'The Book of Hope' with other authors and poets.  Our inspiration from our poems, came from the poem simple known as Hope by the poet Anthony Horowitz.  This is what we hope for.


We are authors

Date: 22nd Jan 2021 @ 4:28pm

We have been learning about the author of the Wolf Wilder and The Book of Hopes, Katherine Rundell. We have written a biography about her life and career.  Katherine Rundell still writes intriguing books and poems.

We are artists!!!

This half term our focus text is the Wolf Wilder.  It's a book written by the author Katherine Rundell.  The story is set deep in the Russian wilderness and is about a young Russian girl (Feo) who wild's wolves.  The artisocrats tame the wolves to have as pets in their posh homes but when the no longer want them the wolves are sent Feo and her mum to make them wild so they can fend for themselves.

We have looked very carefully at wolves and have used our sketching skills to draw wolves in different ways.  We have even recreated our own book cover.
