English: This week we continued with our class reader, Varjak Paw. We began planning a descriptive narrative of Varjak’s escape into the city. To help develop our writing, we continued to improve our figurative language skills. In addition, we added speech and prepositions to our toolkits. On Thursday, we began writing in an attempt to show off all of our newly developed skills. The finished results are superb and on Friday we had story time, as children read out their completed narratives. Both Mrs Bradley and I were astounded by the quality of the stories and the rest of the class were immersed in their class friends’ work.
History: Our classroom was split into East and West Germany this week. The children began to think about what it would be like to live on either side of the Berlin wall. We then had fun role-playing the roles of a news reporter and a resident of East Germany. Our aim was to find out their thoughts and feelings of living during this time.
This week we received 7 handshakes.
Our attendance was 99.2%
Our star of the week was Charliann, I have been very impressed with the effort she has put into her handwriting. Keep up the good work and I am sure you will have your pen licence very soon.
