Congratulations to Izabelle who took out first place with her entry 'Paper Roses'. It was a special treat to see this amazing outfit when she modeled it in assembly. A fantastic work of art, Izabelle and you looked gorgeous in it.
Our focus for writing this term is 'Persuasive' writing which includes arguments, debates and explanations. Mrs Rout's group had impromptu debates today. The children positioned themselves on an imaginary continuum line, depending on whether they agreed or disagreed with a given statement. In pairs, they then had to come up with one reason for their position, and deliver it to the class. Not sure how much effect the production had had, but suffice to say there were some very effective, if not forceful, arguments given!! Lots of laughs and some great discussion followed.
A BIG welcome back! It was so cool to see everyone meeting up with their classmates and expressing pleasure at being back at school. I have attached a copy of our class newsletter, just in case it didn't make it home!
I hope everyone has a safe and a well earned relaxing holiday. Rememeber there is a holiday reading challenge running through the holidays. If you find yourself reading in a strange/unusual/ interesting place - take a photo and email it to me so I can put it on the blog. Parents - if you 'catch' your child reading, take a picture and send it to me too. Photos can be emailed to : firstname.lastname@example.org.
