Once upon a time, Little Red set off into the woods to catch a wolf . . .

But the woods aren't all they seem - and are there even any wolves left? Mini Grey re-imagines the classic Little Red Riding Hood fable in an entirely new way. Can Little Red help her new friends in need and recover the wild days of the past?

This is a powerful, moving and funny picture book which will have children and adults revisiting its exquisite pages time and time again, and discussing the important message it holds. From the award-winning author/illustrator of The Adventures of the Dish and the Spoon, The Pea and the Princess and Biscuit Bear.

Letters of persuasion

 

Here at Brinsworth Manor Infants School, we aim to have an broad curriculum that identifies how different subjects can link and cross over with each other.  This half term, the children have been exploring growing plants and flowers and their importance to the world.  In this project, they are designing a garden area to develop within school grounds so we decided to try and get persuasive in order to get the support of some local businesses.

A few letters from Tiger Class 🐯 we tried hard to include a ‘question’ in our letter and tried to extend our ideas using the joining word ‘and’. Freddie’s plan shows you how we planned our letters before writing them 🤩

Giraffe class and their RWInc phonics

 

This week we've been reading "Vulture Culture" in Read, Write, Inc.  This is a non-chronological report all about the Andean condor's from South America.  The class' fluency with the language in the text has been impressive but even more so is their eagerness to learn about the largest flying bird.  

 

Did you know the Andean condor has a wingspan of up to 3 metres?  Wow!
