Spring 1 English - The Snail and the Whale

In Spring 1, our English text is The Snail and the Whale, by Julia Donaldson - A beautiful tale of an unlikely friendship, a tour of the world and a heroic rescue.

We will be looking carefully at the illustrations used to help tell the story and will look at the different literary features used within the text such as description and rhyme. We will use the text to create our own poems and books as well as researching locations and animals. 



The Snail and the Whale

Autumn 2/ Spring 1

“Land Ahoy!” is a thematic unit, with a subject focus on science and geography. The science element is based around sound, speed and motion and begins by exploring how things move, linking with a pirate’s journey around the continents and oceans. The unit concludes with an introduction to sound, focusing on sources of sound and the relationship between distance and volume. Threaded through is the theme of behaving responsibly, with consideration for others.
