This term our focus book is 'Twas the Night Before Christmas' we will be reading this as a class looking at the use of old and new language, the rhymes and descriptions. We will use this book to write about what happens on the night before Christmas in our homes.

Pipit's class are also learning about art, and artwork produced by notable artists. We take inspiration from Van Gogh's paintings through the wonderfully rich text 'Katie and the Starry Night' written by James Mayhew.
