Spring 2: Julia Donaldson

Julia Donaldson


This half term we will be learning all about the books written by the author Julia Donaldson.


We will start by reading the story “The Smartest Giant in Town”. We will be trying on large items of clothing and using oversized giant wellies to make giant footprints. Over the following weeks, we will also be reading “A Squash and a Squeeze” and “Room on the Broom”.




We will be celebrating lots of special events this half term including our whole school theme "Love for Books", World Book Day, Red Nose Day, Mothers' Day, Ramadan and Easter!
