Y6 and the Winter Pony

Year 6 and the Winter Pony


Year 6 should feel incredibly proud of the work that they are producing based on our class book: The Winter Pony. The book is based on the intrepid explorer Captain Scott and his ill fated mission to reach the South Pole, by trekking across Antarctica.


The book is written through the eyes of one of the horses, who went on the expedition and the children have shown great understanding and empathy when writing about the struggles.

In particular, we have been practising answering questions by finding evidence in the text. As a result of this, the children have produced some amazing character descriptions of some of the men, and even tackled writing a flashback from the point of view of the Winter Pony.


Well done Year 6. Mrs Cook and Miss Southam are very proud of how hard you are working.
