The Book of Hopes


Initially, our English lessons will focus on ‘The Book of Hopes’, a book created by a number of authors to comfort, inspire and entertain children during the unprecedented uncertainty we have been facing.  Our sequence encourages adventuring with new and old friends both tiny and human-child-sized, providing an opportunity for your children to engage in imaginative play and talk about these experiences in order to stimulate their own creative writing. The focus is on writing in complete, accurate sentences to entertain a reader.  

Grammar/vocabulary development activities have been interwoven throughout so that children can revise and practise the ‘writer’s tricks’ they will need to use.
