WHAT HAVE WE BEEN UP TO?
THE GREAT ZOO DEBATE!
For the last three weeks, Class 4 have been learning about balanced arguments. This topic culminated in the Great Zoo Debate on the last day of the half term. There was great passion displayed on both sides of the argument and the children presented their arguments with fairness and enthusiasm. Well done Class 4!
Class 4 are reading Street Child by Berlie Doherty.
Today we have been looking at the characters and how they feel. The children took part in an activity called 'Conscience Alley' where they offered the main character Jim, their own advice on whether or not he should try to escape from the workhouse.
The class discussed whether Macbeth was to blame for King Duncan's murder - or could it have been Lady Macbeth who was more to blame?
We had some lively discussion!
