During English lessons, we have been looking at war poems and Flanders Field in depth. We spoke about each verse and what the author John McCrea was trying to say. We rehearsed it and below is the video of the class reciting it.
Our first text in English is 'Every Child a Song'. The children have enjoyed reading this book.
The children have written some amazing poems all about their song and what it does and what it has the right to do.
Here are some examples.....

Today we started a new book called 'The Lost Happy Endings'
We have only read the first 4 pages, but so far the children are really enjoying it. The story is about a little called called Jub who, at night, climbs the tallest tree to release all of the Happy Endings whilst people are asleep. One day however she meets a witch who steals the bag from her and Jub is left devastated. We can't wait to find out what happens next!
