Troll Class - Home learning
We are reading Roald Dahl's 'Fantastic Mr. Fox' for inspiration for our writing. A copy of the book can be found here. As we read the book, we will be creating our own diaries, newspaper reports and 'Wanted' posters, as well as practicing our GPS skills. The relevant sheets for this work are included in the home-learning packs that you have received.
In addition, you will also find some short texts to help develop comprehension skills further.
