It has been a shorter than expected week in Bee Class (thank you snow!) but no less busy. Here is what we have been up to!
- We performed an assembly about the life and times of Charles Dickens – thank you to all of the parents who were able to come along and watch!
- We have been looking at how a book on the aforementioned author is structured to make the subject even more interesting in Literacy
- We have been revising long multiplication and short division in Maths
- We have started work on our Pop Art masterpieces made from unrecyclable plastics – they are looking great!
Today in Literacy we used a list of expanded noun phrases to create a really descriptive paragraph that brings the scene to life for the reader. I would like you to do the same for a different experience than the one you wrote about in class. Remember to use semi-colons to uncomplicated your list and get poetic with your use of words and language!
Here’s the one we wrote in class as a reminder!
Picture the sky both grey and angry, and the clouds were rolling in like a herd of wild horses. Add to all this, the hot and stuffy air inside the coach; the ear deafening screech of children; the irritating click of the footrests bringing the stressed teachers to the edge of their patience and paper airplanes slicing through the air like knives.
