English

Week beginning 15th January

 

This week year 6 were reading the story of 'Shackleton's Journey' by William Grill. This true story tells us how Ernest Shackleton and his crew managed to survive crossing the frozen heart of Antarctica. In their English lessons, the children have been carrying out research into their chosen job roles in order to write a letter of application to become a member of Shackleton's crew!

No Outsiders

Wednesday 17th January

 

Toda we read the book called 'My Princess Boy' written by Cheryl Kilodavies. It was based on a true story where the mother (Cheryl) tells a tale of a 4 year old boy who happily expresses himself by dressing up. The young boy was her son, Dyson, who loves the colour pink and sparkly things. His mother was worried he may become a target for bullies so tried to discourage him. She has now published a picture book about how there is nothing wrong with the way he chooses to dress. 

This book teaches us about acceptance and promoting diversity. It is also a call for tolerance and an end to bullying and prejudice.
