The children have been writing lots of letters and they have written to Tom Heaton wishing him a speedy recovery. Here are some photos of Tom with our letters and one of his favourite books, The Lighthouse Keeper's Lunch. We also got some lovely photos of Nick Pope thanks to Mrs Townley.
Here are some of the pictures that the children designed and sent with their letters to Tom Heaton.
(Inspired by the Animation on the Literacy Shed)
The children watched a few seconds from a short animation film called The Lighthouse. From this, they used their writing skills to describe the Lighthouse Keeper and the setting of the Lighthouse. They had to show progress in their letter formation, punctuation and focus on using commas in a list. The children then wrote some questions to the Lighthouse Keeper and then took it in turns to ask and answer questions. Some of the children were hot seated and were brilliant at answering the questions.
The children have been reading The Lighthouse Keeper's Lunch by Ronda and David Armitage. They have written letters to the author and drawn these amazing pictures.
