Black History Day

For Black History Day we looked at the life of Martin Luther King. We started off by looking at photos of Martin Luther King and tried to write down some notes of things we learn about him from the pictures. After that we watched a video of his famous ‘I have a dream’ speech and began to look at what he had achieved in his life. We looked at the dates that important events happened in his life and put them onto a timeline. Finally in the afternoon, we did some drama to understand the passion behind the ‘I have a dream’ speech. We performed this in assembly for the rest of the school to see.

Investigating the features of a film review

Today we were introduced to the WAGOLL for our current writing topic which is opinion pieces of writing. After reading the WAGOLL carefully, we looked at a range of different features and had to decide which features were in the text and which features were not. After discussing our findings and giving evidence to support our ideas, we put our features into a diamond 11 shape to order the features from the most important to the least important.
