What a busy term P6X have had!!! We have now completed the novel The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas with only the DVD to watch in the last week of term.
We have completed some fantastic writing using the novel as a context and enjoyed doing lots of drama to help us understand the characters in more detail. We were particularly good at hotseating. We are looking forward to debating in class next week whether the novel handled the Holocaust in a sensitive manner and discussing the moral of the story in more detail.
We have enjoyed working with Mr Todd (3rd year BEd student) and have enjoyed learning about the Jewish faith with him. He has taught us all about the Synagogue, Hannukah, the Passover and Shabbat. We have also researched famous Jewish people at home and researched artefacts such as the Torah, the Menorah and the Mezuzah at ICT time.
We are now looking forward to enjoying the lead up to Christmas in class.
