The Little Ghost

As part of our topic on Germany, we wanted to hear some German stories. Our class novel has been 'The Little Ghost' by Otifried Preussler and we have also watched the film on which the book is based.  In our English work we have been working on narrative fiction.  We have retold the story of 'The Little Ghost'.  We hope you enjoy reading our work.

Non-chronological reports

The children have been researching the Allgaeu region of southern Germany as part of their topic.  They have used a variety of sources to find out information including books, the internet and videos.  They have then used the information to produce their own non-chronological reports on Oberstdorf.  We hope you enjoy reading them.

A persuasive leaflet

We found out lots of information about Germany and then learnt the features of persuasive writing.  Have a look at some of our leaflets and see if we have successfully used the features of persuasive writing.

Stories inspired by 'Katy and the Starry Night,'

As part of our topic on 'Great Artists,' we studied the work of Van Gogh.  We read the story, 'Katy and the Starry Night,' and used the text to inspire our own stories where children have adventures in the pictures of Van Gogh.


Have a read of some of our picture books, we hope you enjoy them.
