LEARNING to make a difference

Autumn 1

Autumn Term 1


In the first half-term, our topic theme is Survival.


In English, we start by writing our own adventure stories based on 'The Jungle Book' by Rudyard Kipling. 

We use different versions of the text and film clips to inspire our writing.



Our published pieces are on display in the entrance to our Year 6 building.



We then move on to writing our own biographies about Bear Grylls.

Do you know any facts about Bear Grylls?


Our published biographies are on display in the entrance to Year 6.



Our class reader is 'Running Wild' by Michael Morpurgo.


It recounts the adventures of a boy who has to survive in the Indonesian jungle

after being saved from a tsunami by an elephant.


Mrs Booth's favourite animal is in this book - who will be the first to work out what it is?


What did you think of the book? Did you like the ending? What do you think would happen next?
