We have had a very productive first week back. We have been comparing The BFG and Who Let the Gods out – we particularly enjoyed the descriptions of the Queen. In English we have written some incredible descriptions of the Earth Stone – focussing on increasing the intensity of our vocabulary as we moved through the text. We have nearly finished our book and are desperate to know the ending…. Miss Peck has bought the next one in the series so we can continue the adventure if we want to. In topic we learnt about the first Olympic games and the Japanese belief of Shinto – we had lots of questions which we hope we can answer next week. At lunch times we have been creating our own shade from the sun using the den building equipment and have been very collaborative and creative.
