This week is Roald Dahl week at Charlestown. In our guided reading sessions, we will be focusing on the story of the Twits completing lots of different activities such as designing the front cover, character descriptions and writing disgusting recipes!
To start off the week, we were lucky enough to be able to watch a performance of the BFG which the children loved. We have been reading this book as our class novel so it was great to see it brought to life with props and sound effects!
What did you like about the performance and why?
What are you looking forward to most about Roald Dahl week?
In topic, we have been learning all about the Amazon Rainforest and the animals and plants that live there. As well as this, we have learnt about how people are chopping the trees down for lots of different reasons.
The children formed their own opinion about whether they think deforestation is a good thing or a bad thing. We did a conscience alley to show our ideas.
