As the coronavirus lockdown continues we decided to make use of the time stuck indoors to tackle another book: Tom's Midnight Garden. The tale of a boy who discovers a magical garden at the back of the house where his aunt and uncle live after the clock strikes thirteen.
Tom's Midnight Garden
It's quite a lengthy book, but both the children enjoyed it, and it has aged very well considering it was written in the 1950s. There wasn't a lot of time for project work besides the reading of the book, although we did do some Twinkl worksheets and a word search.
We also had time to watch the 1999 film version - which sticks closely to the original story.
