Clips from James and The Giant Peach

Novel Study - James and the Giant Peach.


This term we will be introducing Novel Study to our classroom and our learners. Our Novel Study book is James and the Giant Peach. 

We will be accessing the text through it being read to us and watching the film. 

Our theme will be starting with a curiosity kit containing clues. We are going to ask questions about what is in the kit and then we will begin to predict based on the clues in the kit.

We will then begin looking at the characters in the story and leaning some more about them, building up some amazing adjectives to describe the characters. 

We will be following the travels of James through the book and will end the theme writing a new version of the ending.

Climbing inside, he meets an astonishing cast of characters and embarks on a magical odyssey full of thrills and adventure.

James & the Giant Peach Musical: 2016

Performed by the Woodstock Children's Summer Theater this production of James & the Giant Peach was a blast to work on and is signature of the kind of work that the town's theater program has annually achieved. And no, folks, it is of course NOT a Broadway show; obviously.
