No Pens Wednesday!

Year 5 had a great day today. Throughout the day we did not use any writing implements and our learning was through role play and dialogue.

During our Literacy lesson, as part of our learning journey on our book “Running Wild”, by Michael Morpurgo, we worked with a partner to create a powerful dialogue between Will (the main character) and the mahoot (the elephant guide)

The children generated powerful questions to find out about the two characters. We enjoyed watching each others performances and telling each pair what was good about their performance.

We also had a super session on emotional well being and mindfulness, where we created a peg doll of a person who was supportive towards us.

Do ask your child to tell you all about our learning today!
