We started the beginning of 2013 with and incredible book week here at Thornhill Primary. We chose “The jolly Postman” by Allan Ahlberg as the starter to all our work for the week. Children from Foundation to Y6 studied the series of letters within the book, then thought of more of their own! Letters of aplogy from the Big Bad Wolf and a holiday brochure for the Prince were some of the ways we enhanced the story.
The quality of writing was superb! All our pupils really engaged with letters and instructional writing (How the evil queen instructed the huntsman to find and kill Cinderella for the oldest pupils!) The week ended with a fancy dress assembly where we all adopted our favourite characters.
The staff joined in too!
