The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas


As part of the history element of the Blue Star Programme the children in Third and Fourth Class have started listening to Mrs. Crosby reading "The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas". This is a literary response to World War II which the children will be learning about as the year progresses. In relation to this story the children will be completing various activities based on "The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas". These activities include:

  1. Book Fact File
  2. The children will design a poster that could be used to launch and promote the book.
  3. The children will create their own crosswords based on the novel.
  4. Character Study = The children will create a word web based on Bruno and Shmel.
  5. The children will draw an illustration to accompany the book.
  6. When Mrs. Crosby has finished reading the story to the children they will write a book review on the story.

The children are enjoying the story so far and we are having whole class discussions on the story as it progresses.
