National Poetry Day
 
Gorilla Class looked at the poem The British (serves 60 million) by the poet Benjamin Zephaniah.  The poem tells us how Britain has been shaped over the years by people coming from other countries.  It gives us an idea of how our language has developed and why we should celebrate the idea of multiculturalism.  We discussed why people came to Britain over time and it has given us some insight into why we have words in English that don't always fit the spelling rules!  We hope you enjoy our recital.
 
 
 
 
 
Here are our competition first place winners for the Milk Bottle design challenge.  
Well done to everyone who entered the range of ideas and all the hard work you put in was amazing and we were so pleased to see all the entries.  We enjoyed our special assembly when all the children who entered won a choclolate lolly and got to talk about their design.  We did not enjoy judging though as it was so hard to pick winners and we did love them all.  The first places won books and the sccond places won seeds so we hope you enjoy reading and planting and eating your prizes.  Special mention to Mr Owen who was allowed to enter his garden cane toppers - very useful!  
  
  
Gorilla Class have been studying the book Moon Man by Tomi Ungeren.  They have published an anthology of their poems about when Moon Man discovers new things while he is on Earth.
