Year 3/4 Chatterbooks – Wordless Picture Books

Today in Chatterbooks we spent time looking at a selection of wordless picture books. To imspire the children we watched a video of somebody telling the story of ‘The Snowman’ by Raymond Briggs using  the pictures as clues.

 

We chose our favourite wordless picture book and created our own stories which we shared with the group.

  

 

  

 

 

The children have brought home ‘A Story Without Words, worksheet so they can tell their own story without words if they would like to. Hope you all have a great half-term, I’m looking forward to findimg out what you’ve been reading.

Year 5/6 Chatterbooks

We have had 2 great Chatterbooks sessions with our year 5/6 children. This week we did activities based around the ‘Pugs of the Frozen North’ by Philip Reeve and Sarah McIntyre. The children learned how to draw a pug with a handy guide from Sarah McIntyre, if you want to try this at home just follow the link.

  

 

  

We turned our favourite books into frozen stories, who wouldn’t want to read a book called, ‘My Headteacher is a Vampire Yeti.’

  

  

The children then created and drew their own frozen magical creatures.

  

  

It was lovely to hear the children chatting about their favourite books they have been reading this half-term during our sessions.
