Here is the website I was going to show you today (but it didn’t work!) for you to look at at home. It is much more interesting and useful than the one we looked at!

This week in Literacy, we have been looking at the main character in a wordless (and infact Spanish!) Christmassy video. We did a lot of work on understanding the character and used mind maps to understand his feelings and emotions. The children then wrote a narration as the character Justino to explain what was going on and his thoughts and feelings. A lot of work has gone into this adn I am really pleased with the effective vocabulary and emotive writing that the children have written! Here are their videos. Please leave any comments you have. We would love to hear from you!
