Five minutes of fame…

Over the last couple of week’s, the children in Osprey have all had their five minutes of fame: a presentation to the class on a topic of their choice.  They could choose to teach us something new, or share an interest of theirs.  These skills and interests ranged from origami to musical instruments.  Some even shared their Reading Journeys, just like the teachers did.  Most produced a PowerPoint to accompany their presentation.

Reading tip #5

Today, in our Guided Reading session, we looked at a short film-clip and then discussed it. You can learn a lot about how an author draws in their audience by looking at film, because a screenwriter will use some of the same strategies. Seeing them visually helps the children to spot them more easily when reading them in a book. 

Goodbye Miss Perry

We have been privileged to have had a lovely student, Miss Perry, with us every Wednesday for the last few months. Today was her last day with us and we will really miss her. She has helped us so much and we have really appreciated everything she has done for us. We wish her well and hope to see her again one day. Goodbye Miss Perry.
