Our Learning Journey

We have had a great time celebrating book week in school. It was lovely to share our favourite stories with our friends on Monday when we dressed up as our favourite characters. We have also been very lucky to have a special visitor in school this week. Pauline Loh, a local Singaporean author came to read one of her stories to us called ‘Ye Ye, What are you doing?’ You can learn more about this author and see more of her books using this link.

The children have had a go at writing and retelling stories in class. Some children used their imagination to think of their own story and some children retold our class book in their own words. Many of the children were able to tell the class about their favourite character from a book and the children appear to be gaining confidence speaking in front of an audience.
