This week, Year 6 were fortunate enough to meet Marcus Alexander, author of the ‘Keeper of the Realms’ trilogy. He shared his love of writing with us and explained to us what inspired him to write his fantastic books. We even managed to get our books signed! In English, we have been focussing on poetry. As a class, we studied, discussed and recited ‘The Raven’ by Edgar Allan Poe. His poetry is rich in figurative language and we hope to use some of these devices in our own writing. In P.E., we worked on our football skills. Many of the children have improved their skill level so much already. Coach Grant will select a competition team soon and he will be looking for children who communicate well, play as a team and work hard together.
