Our Learning in P6N w/c 12th October

Literacy

Class Novel – This week we finished our class novel Friend Or Foe by Michael Morpurgo. The whole class loved this book and can’t wait to read more of his work. Our task this week was to find evidence from the text to show if the Germans were friends or foes. Then we had to create a colorful poster with the evidence on it and then we put them in our learning stories.

Reading – This week in reading we had another meeting with our reading group to discuss our literature circle roles. We had to have a discussion director, an artful adventurer, a super summarizer, a literary luminary and a character captain. We shared our learning with our reading group and then discussed our roles for next week.

Spelling – This week in spelling we learned ous which says us. We had to split the words into syllables and then think of our own words. E.g. ner/vous, mar/vell/ous and con/tag/ious.

Topic – This week for our topic we had to carry on with our space shuttle launch story by upleveling some sentences and then continuing the story.
