Year 1 are reading Claude in the City as our current class book. This tells the story about a dog called Claude who has many different adventures in a big city.
The story has inspired the children to create their own cityscape artwork. The children were asked to imagine a setting somewhere in the city. They drew a picture of this and then added a complete sentence to describe what is taking place.
This work will lead to Year 1 looking at some poetry inspired by cities. We will soon start to read the poem This is the City by Kathy Henderson. The children will use this work to write their own poems to describe the city.
Our artwork and poetry will be collected together and displayed in a special Year 1 scrapbook.
