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.
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.
This week, some of us went outside to get familiar with equivalent fractions, with a challenge to use certain numbers. When we’d got a good grasp of how to do it, we went back to the rest of the group and set them the same challenge! Some of our numbers got quite large – it really got our brains ticking over!
Last week, we sent Andy Seed some thank-you letters for visiting our school recently. The children worked hard on them and added jokes and funny stories that they thought he would enjoy. Today, we received a reply from him, which is so personalised that I really wanted to share it with you all. Take a look.
