Stig of the Dump

Class: Year 4/5: Quartz Year: 2023 - 2024

Our new English unit is based on the book 'Stig of the Dump' by Clive King. This week we immersed ourselves into the unit through using Lego to build Stig's den, thinking about what items he would have inside. We then focused on our grammar looking at using the correct punctuation for direct speech. We had a super fun lesson where we learnt a new song to help us remember what we need to include and the week ended with us becoming Stig, engaging in a conversation between himself and Barney. This resulted in a final piece of work which showed a conversation between Sig and Barney in which the direct speech was punctuated correctly.
