Week 2 Challenges

Hello everybody. Hope you are all well. This week we are going to focus our challenges on a story written by a British author, Julia Donaldson.


We have already spend a Term looking at different stories written by Julia Donaldson so your children should be familiar with most of them. The book that I have chosen for you to look at is a little less known and I hope you enjoy the story. Its called 'Spinderella'. Does it sound similar to a story that you already know?


Have fun completing the challenges, please feel free to ask an adult to take photographs of your work and email them into us here at school. 

We love seeing all the work you have completed and really look forward to hearing from you!


Spinderella by Julia Donaldson
