Week 3

This term we are reading ‘Meerkat Mail’ by Emily Gravett.

Sunny the meerkat lives with his enormous family in the Kalahari Desert. One day Sunny decides to go on a trip to visit all his mongoose relatives around the world. He sends postcards home to his family and at first they are full of enthusiasm, but as the trip goes on and he has to stay with family who stay up all night, to those that live in swamps, to those who eat eggs off farms, he decides that maybe his own family is just right for him!

The children have been learning the features of a postcard and have really enjoyed writing her own postcards to Sunny.

This week we are learning to write sentences about Sunny, making sure we include the days of the week, capital letters, full stop and exclamation marks.
