World Book Day 7 Mar 2014

For world book day all our teachers swapped classes and taught a different age range for the Literacy lesson. I moved to year 4/5 and shared my love of the Mr Gum books by Andy Stanton. They are extremely silly and full of fun. When reading them aloud to children I usually end up giggling or re-reading bits of the text as some parts are so crazy. After reading some of the first book to The children we set to work designing our own Lamonic Bibber (the village where the stories takes place) ‘free money’ notes, played Mr Gum Top Trumps, did the online Mr Gum quiz and drew pictures of the main character Mr Gum, based on his description in book one of the series. I could have easily continued with this work all day. It was brilliant…..the Mr Gum Top Trumps Champion Finals has yet to take place! Mrs G.
