Week 4 - 28th of September to 2nd of October 2020
In English, we continued to work on our text The Paperbag Princess, which is a funny, quirky modern fairytale. Last week we had a wondeful time discussing how we would rewrite the story from the dragon's perspective and we had a lot of fun with them pretending to be the dragon. On the Friday , they wrote notes , using bullet points in order to help them write. This week, they rewrote part of the story each day. I was very impressed with their imaginative ideas and with how they really got into the character. On Friday, they had the opportunity to read their stories aloud and to think about what their favourite parts were and to consider if they would change what they had done if they were doing it again.
This week's Spellings (ai words) have been stuck into their Reading Journals and next week our focus will be on the 'ay' words. We no longer do spelling tests in our school but will be having dictations to check their knowledge of how to spell the words. Please practise the words every day.
