We have read and responded to lots of Julia Donaldson's books.
We enjoyed reading 'Jack and the Flum Flum Tree' and used our own patchwork sack to retell the story. We explored patchwork patterns and created some of our own using computer programs and paper to create collages.
We drew and painted our own monkeys inspired by the mischievious monkey in the story. We also wrote character descriptions about the monkey using interesting descriptive words and phrases to create images for our reader.
