Welcome to our class page

This term our topic is Authors and Illustrators. We kicked off our topic with a visit to the library and to visit the Theatre in Llandrndod to watch the Smartest Giant in Town. When we returned to school, we looked at the Julia Donaldson book in more depth and created story maps.

 

We created crowns and wrote letters that the ones that appear in the story. Following that we met Author Anwen Nicholls and Illustrator Kenneth Rees who visited school to talk to us about what makes a good author and how we create illustrations like the ones in the book.

 

The following week we had a visit from a journalist who spoke to us about writing for newspapers! He told us lots about how the stories are put together to make the newspaper.

 

We are now looking at Welsh Author Roald Dahl. We had a visit from 'Alf' on Friday 13th May who took us through the adventures of some of the Roald Dahl characters.
