Literacy. 

Image result for mirror book

The last two weeks we have been studying the book "Mirror-Jeanie Baker". The children have used drama as well as discussion to explore the graphic novel before starting to write a diary entry from the perspective of the characters. 

The children have enjoyed using this book as it has allowed them to discover countries that they may have not encountered before. 

 

Team Building. 

To introduce ourselves to becoming a year 6 team, rather than separate classes, we took part in three team building activities. 

The children were mixed into groups from both classes and required to use communication skills to complete each task.
