For the past month we have been learning about writing newspaper articles. We researched a big event in history and wrote a report on the happenings on that day. We then presented our report to the class. We learnt about lots of different historical events as well as all the features of a newspaper.
The book blitz challenge came to an end on Friday. All children put in a trojan effort, reading a large variety of books with great joy and enthusiasm throughout the six weeks. They grabbed every opportunity presented during the day to pick up their book and read, which was great to see! The children were presented with their certificates and prizes- well done fourth class!
We are learning the poem ‘The Boneyard Rap.’ We had fun practising performing the rap!
This week we will be researching a famous person of our choice and writing up their biographies. Then we will learn to present our biographies using ‘Prezi’ sofware! To access Prezi, click on the following link:
