Macaulay came to show me the wonderful homework he had done, inspired by a recent Spanish lesson. He illustrated a canvas with a map of the world and marked where different animals could be found. He labelled these animals in Spanish. Mrs Smith was also very proud that he had remembered his Spanish so well.

A group from Mrs Goulder’s class came to perform their persuasive writing ‘Talk for Writing’. They used actions successfully to remember the text and tell me that they now understand the key features of a persuasive text. They will be writing their own persuasive leaflet about Beaumanor hall in the coming weeks.

Miss Smythe brought Ethan to tell me about his improved attitude. She is so pleased that he is now much more positive and willing to have a go and take  challenges. This is just the kind of attitude which will help Ethan to succeed!
