We have been writing cinquains this week and today we wrote and performed them. As you can imagine, there was a bit of a Christmassy theme with the poems
We have been reading a wonderful book called 'The Rabbits' by John Marsden and Shaun Tan. It has raised lots of moral issues and discussion and as per usual we have added some drama- above is how we imagine the possums would feel when they first catch sight of the rabbis.
We have had a fantastic morning investigating maps, letters and other historical sources to find out about Alfred Wainwright and have also copied some his maps and sketches. Many thanks to Barrow Archives for a great morning.
