Learning Together At Home 25.03.20

Hi everyone, we hope you and your families are well.

LITERACY

WRITING

We have been reading ‘The Midnight Gang’ together. In this story the hospital porter helps the children who are patients to achieve their own personal dreams. Amber’s dream is to become a famous explorer so they recreate the North Pole in the basement. Robin’s dream is to conduct an entire orchestra, George’s dream is to fly and Sally’s dream is to live a big beautiful life in one night.

What would your dream be? If you could make something happen or do something you have always wanted to do? Maybe you would like to score the winning goal in a cup  final, be an archaeologist and discover an ancient city, dance in the final of BGT, write an amazing story, star in a movie- what ever your dream is , we would like you to write about it in your jotter.
