Rory loves reading and so do we!

A new child has started at Charlestown… Rory the Lion. Rory loves reading but loves it even more when children read to him. We were so excited in Team 3 that we read him, ‘Room on the Broom.’ Highlight, copy and paste the links below into your internet web bar to us read. We have been practicing fluency and expression, can you tell?

We loved your feedback about what went well:

Even better if:

Getting ready for our exit point!

Since September, we have been learning about ourselves. We have celebrated our similarities, differences and learned that we can belong to different groups. We even learned how we are similar and different to children around the world.

For our exit point, we are inviting parents in to learn all about us in a special game of ‘Guess Who!’ To do this, we had to put our creative DT skills to the test to make our very own boards. We even wrote instructions on how to make the boards. Take a look at our hard work:
