Rights, Rhyme and Rocking out!

As we approach the weekend, we say a massive well done to Amethyst class who performed their sharing assembly to the parents today.  We hope you enjoyed it as much as we enjoyed making it for you.

This week, we have tried our hand at writing poems inspired by Macavity.  We used poetic devices such as: alliteration, similes, metaphors, hyperbole, rhythm and rhyme to write poems about fiendish felines.   Check out some of the examples in their books.

Next week in English, we are looking forward to starting a story unit based on a lovely picture book called The Dead Family Diaz. This story links to our Spanish unit and the recent Mexican celebration of Dia de Los Muertos (Day of The Dead).

In Topic this week our focus was on the comparison between modern day children and children in the Mayan times. We looked at the UN Convention of the Rights of the Child and used these to see if Mayan children had similar rights. The classes were very shocked to learn that children, those who were poor and female in particular, had no rights and must have lived very different and difficult lives.
