This week, we finished our flashbacks about ‘The Piano’ – a sad tale of an old man reflecting on his life. We discussed using emotive language and building description to engage the reader and add depth to our work.
Here are some extracts we would like to share with you:

This week, we have been planning our Ancient Egyptian artwork and designing our own beautiful amulets. We investigated the cloisonne technique before designing our own work. We used hieroglyphics from Ancient Egyptian times to plan and create our amulets, with each hieroglyph meaning something different.

Well done to the selected members of Class 6 for their achievements in the First News competition this week. They competed with other schools and tested their news knowledge to help them win one of the challenges.
Over the last few weeks, we have been engaging with the news through First News publications and debating a range of current affairs and issues. We then used our skills to write up some newspaper articles about our achievements at our recent residential trip.
