We have started our new novel: Floodland.
The children intrigued by it and very much looking forward to reading it.
We started the day today with a drama sketch. We created a Conscience Alley, where two characters walk down an ‘alleyway’ and the children pretend to be the character’s conscience.
Below are the videos and pictures. Enjoy!
During an English lesson we created a court session.
We we split the class into four groups, each group was given a character to defend.
They had to justify why their client deserved the thing they want from
‘The Great and Powerful Oz’
Dorothy wanted to go home.
Scarecrow wanted a brain.
Tin Woodman wanted a heart.
Cowardly Lion wanted some courage.
Here are some pictures and videos.
We had a visitor come visit us in English.
It was Aunt Em all the way from Kansas.
We were able to ask her questions about her life in Kansas
with Uncle Henry and Dorothy.
We have been reading 'The Day War Came' about a little refugee girl from Syria.
The children had to write their own poem and perform it in front of the class.
They all did brilliantly!
