This term our class' theme is: 'A Little Magic Can Take You a Long Way.' We will be reading 'Artemis Fowl,' a book about a 12-year-old boy, a millionaire, a genius—and, above all, a criminal mastermind. But even Artemis doesn't know what he's taken on when he kidnaps a fairy, Captain Holly Short of the LEP-Recon Unit. These aren't the fairies of bedtime stories—they're dangerous! Full of unexpected twists and turns, Artemis Fowl is a riveting, magical adventure. I hope your child enjoys it! Our stunning start will be a creative immersion into the our class book with questioning, prediction and book cover design.
The Book Corner is now themed as a Sprite's potion and magic shop (in the story, Artemis' first stage of his villainous venture is meeting a Sprite [fairy] and entraps her into giving up her spell book. He copies this book and translates it and sets off on his plot to swindle and exploit a new species for Gold. Or does he?
The working wall is set up like a police investigation board. We will be adding files to it as we read more into the book.
