The Silver Donkey
 

 

 

Our final Power of Reading book before Christmas was The Silver Donkey. This is the story of a First World War soldier, who has fallen on hard times and is rescued by two little girls who find him in a forest.

As a class we studied various aspects of the Great War and tried to write in role imagining the horrors of trench warfare. The novel gave us the opportunity to practise our story writing skills - hope you enjoy reading them.
