What an amazing day we had on our trip to Portchester Castle!

This week in Literacy we are thinking about language. We looked at the same sentence and thought about different language we could use in each sentence.

This week, we experienced something strange in Giraffe class. After the golden mile, we found a strange mess in our classroom. We were all very confused and annoyed that someone made such a mess and left it. We made predictions about who we thought made the mess but it was not who we thought it was. It turns out it was Billy and Fatcat from the book ‘Billy and the Dragon’. In another lesson, we hot seated Billy and Fatcat so we could infer their emotions. 

We had an excellent first week in Year 2, focusing on our Belonging Week. We found out more about democracy and it’s importance. This lead to us holding our own election to vote for our school council members. Over the week, thought about how exiting it is to be a part of the Marnel school community.
