In English, this past week, 6N looked at how the title and cover of our class text, and our predictions about it, relate and connect to other books, to our personal lives and to society at large. The children offered insightful comments about familiar and memorable stories, experiences they have lived and ‘big ideas’ or concepts with similar themes. This demonstrates the increasing maturity the children are showing towards the content they are exploring in class. I have noticed this in Shakespeare lessons also, with the children showing great interest in exploring the themes and characters of the play Romeo and Juliet. On the subject of Shakespeare, this week we had our first dance lesson with choreographer, Miss Bianca.
Congratulations to our debaters, as they once again defeated Ravenswood this week!
