Penshaw have started this year off well. All the children are happy in their new classroom and they are eager for the year ahead!
‘Goodnight Mr Tom’ by Michelle Magorian is the novel that they are reading and enjoying. We’re going to be carrying out lots of work centered around this engrossing story. So far, we’ve compared the characters against each other and acted out in roles. We’ve even used masks to help us get into character!
We also read our own leveled books as part of the Accelerated Reading program. On those rare, warm days we even get the chance to read alfresco!
We are fortunate this year, for a coach to help us to improve in ball skills. Our coordination is definitely improving!
