LEARNING to make a difference

Autumn 2

Autumn Term 2


Our next topic is 'The Wizard of Oz'.


We start the unit by reading 'Leon and the Place Between' by Angela McAllister.



From this, we then read a poem called 'The Magic Box' by Kit Wright.

We use both texts as inspiration for our own magic box poems.


Can you spot yours on display in the classroom?








We then read 'The Wizard of Oz' and watch the original film.

We take this as inspiration to write our own Wizard of Oz chapters, where Dorothy and Toto meet a new character.

We design our new characters and settings, and some children even turn their chapters into a futuristic Oz.


All of our work is proudly on display on pop-up palaces in our intervention classroom.
