In English we went through some tough to spell words (examples: tomorrow, special and rotten). We also worked with rhyming words a bit too. Lastly, we went through The Charge of the Light Brigade by Tennyson. We looked at how expression changes how think about the poem, noting that changes in voice level, emphasis on different words and the speed at which we speak all contribute to our overall feeling about the poem. This will come in handy as next week we'll be working in groups to present different poems! Want to learn more about the actual Charge of the Light Brigade? Check out this link then!

We have been using Dojos to help keep track of good behaviour within the class. Week 1 was led by Josh with 8, followed closely by Charlie and Ryan with 7 each. Week 2 had a six-way tie with Alfie, Charlie, Chloe W, Jamielee, Harley and Melody taking top honours. This past week saw Harley and Jamielee tie for first with 5 points each.
Have a great weekend everyone. Remember to bring in your homework, reading folder and PE kit!
