20th - 24th September - posted 24th Sep
Highlights of the Week:
We finished George’s Marvellous Medicine! We discussed why we thought the medicine didn’t have the same effect the second, third or fourth time. This brought up some interesting ideas and we practiced listening to others' ideas and respectfully disagreeing and why or agreeing because. We explored poems around the book and looked closely at George’s spell, which we had great fun acting out! We compared his spell with another from a much loved children’s book (Room on the Broom by Julia Donaldson). This encouraged us to look at the rhythm of the poems and the rhymes. We are working on free verse poems and have read, researched and practiced some. This has set us up to write a class free verse poem about making our own medicines.
