In English, we have been creating story maps to help us with our writing. As you will know from our class assembly, our book focus this term is Roald Dahl’s, George’s Marvellous Medicine. We have been looking at each chapter in detail, drawing a story map to explain it, and then using this to rewrite each chapter.
Here are some examples of our story maps...
In art, we have been designing canopic jars which we will be making next month. Canopic jars date back to the Ancient Egyptian period and were used to store organs such as the heart, lungs, liver and stomach during the mummification process. Come back next month to see photos of our finished products!
We are still enjoying our weekly swimming lessons at Sunderland Aquatic Centre and are becoming increasingly more confident in the water. Our impeccable behaviour commuting to and from the swimming baths hasn’t gone unnoticed by members of the public either. Mrs Cort received a phone call from a fellow commuter on the Metro saying how impressed she was!
Bible Comes Alive
At the beginning of the month, we visited the Methodist Church in South Hylton for Bible Comes Alive. Here we experienced the bible in an interactive and fun manner, where actors brought the Old Testament to life, starting from the creation story, right through until the birth of Jesus.
Mr Donaldson and Miss Maughan would like to thank all parents, carers and other family members for your support during our class assembly on George’s Marvellous Medicine. We hope you enjoyed our retell of this Roald Dahl story as much as we loved reading it!
