Character Descriptions

In English, we have been looking at story openings and character descriptions. For homework we asked the children to come up with descriptions for a family member. Here are some of the children’s efforts.

Rowan Class Charter

Apologies for the delay in blogging since our last post. We’ve had some technical problems which are thankfully now resolved.

In PSHE, we have been following up our work on British values by discussing the environment we would like in our own class and preparing our own class charter. The children worked very hard in groups to come up with their own suggestions before whittling a longer list down to ten rights and responsibilities. The Rowan Class Charter is available to view below while a copy signed by the class will be put on the classroom wall.

The Fisherman’s speech from The Island

During Countries Fortnight, we have been studying Armin Greder’s novel, The Island, which tells the story of a stranger who is washed up on the beach of an isolated island. The focus of the novel is how the man is badly treated by the inhabitants and how their actions could have far reaching consequences. The one man on the island who seems a little bit more enlightened (possibly only for selfish reasons) is the fisherman and the children were set the task of writing a formal speech for him to persuade the other residents that the stranger should be looked after.

Here are two examples of the children’s writing:
