In English this half term we have been reading and writing about the book Skellig by David Almond. We started by identifying themes, we noticed that the theme of birds runs throughout the story- especially owls. We have been writing many different pieces of writing across the genres from newspaper reports to diaries and non-chronological reports. Here is some of our super writing.
We visited Rochester Cathedral to take part in a 'Schools Festival' day.
We experienced the splendour of Rochester Cathedral. We took part in different interactive workshops and activities which explored the Cathedral building and gave us time to celebrate the journey we have had through our primary school.
The Bishop for the Diocese of Rochester joined us at the end of the day to lead our worship and affirmed the importance of the pupils and staff in our schools.
For Sports Day, we need House Captains for our school teams: Medway, Cray, Thames and Darenth.
We wrote letters to Mr. Elliott to explain why we would be the best candidate for the job. Each class selected two winners from each house.
The chosen children then presented a speech to the whole year group. We listened to all their points and then democratically voted as a year group for a Captain and Vice Captain for each house.
In Gibraltar class, Tammy was voted as the captain of Cray house, Joseph was voted the captain of Darenth house and Haleema as Vice-Captain. Janice was voted as Vice-Captain of Thames house and Obinna as House Captain of Medway house. Here are some of their amazing letters.
