Year 5 Princess’ Blanket Documentaries

Both Year 5 Classes have been inspired by our current reading book of The Princess’ Blanket. This tells the tale of a Princess who has an incurable cold.

A stranger brings her the earth’s blanket, containing the forest’s blanket, the ocean’s blanket, the mountain’s blanket and other landscape features. The Princess still feels cold. That is until she meets a musician…

Year 5 have been looking at the documentary genre as part of this learning. We have watched short clips of David Attenborough describing different geographical features.

The pupils then wrote their own documentary entries to describe some of this scenery. Sensory touch boxes were used to help create a sense of each location. You can listen to some of the entries being read out below.
