Over the next few weeks in Class 2 we will be studying a mini Christmas topic about 'Monty the Penguin' based on the John Lewis TV advert. We will be using the advert as a stimulus for writing to give the children inspiration to get some excellent ideas onto paper. We started the topic yesterday where we wrote a series of sentences about Monty's feelings at 3 different points in the advert. In the mini topic we will be creating character profiles for Monty and Sam, writing dialogue between the characters making sure we use all of the correct punctuation and finally writing the story behind the advert.
As well as the writing activities our Christmas craft activitites will be based on Monty.
