Welcome to Class 6M with Mrs Mussenden
Welcome back! I hope that you've had a lovely summer break and your child is raring to go for the new autumn term. We have a very busy year ahead of us, starting with our residential trip to Kingswood, which is coming up very shortly. Keep checking our page for monthly updates, to find out what we've been up to. If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to pop in and see me.
In English, we started this year looking at Performance Poetry and analysed the language and performances of Michael Rosen’s poem, ‘No Breathing in Class’ and ‘Talking Turkeys’ by Benjamin Zephaniah. The use of rhyming couplets, onomatopoeia, expression and repetition allowed us to quickly recite the poem ourselves with actions.
Following this, we wrote a new verse for The Pandora's Box, linked to our work on Ancient Greeks and performed it to the rest of the class. What do you think of our performances?
