This Week in Year 4…
We have been beavering away with preparations for our independent recounts which we wrote today! We watched the final part of "The Ocean Maker" and put ourselves in the shoes of the brave pilot. Some of the language used has been sublime with similes such as:
"the plane sliced through the cloud like a knife through butter"
"the remaining pieces of water vapour were torn apart as though a pack of hyenas had struck.”
It is safe to say that the writing ability of each member of the class has shot through the roof this year and I am so proud!
We have also had a new addition to our class in the form of James Day - a very polite young man who has come to us from Prospect Hill. I think I speak for all of Year 4, as we say that he has settled extremely well since Wednesday and we welcome him officially to Team Hays!
