In Squirrel Class, we have had a very exciting week. It has been lovely getting to know our new class and we are looking forward to the wonderful year we are going to have.
We have begun our new text ‘My Two Blankets’ by Irena Kobald and Freya Blackwood. We all brought in special items that reminded us of home and we created a class blanket. We put the items onto a blanket and thought of adjectives to describe how we felt when we had our special item. Miss McCarthy then asked how we would feel if someone took our special item away or if we were asked to part with it. We thought of contrasting adjectives to describe how would we would feel. We then read our new text and we were introduced to our new character ‘Cartwheel’ who moved to a new country and she compares her old blanket with her new blanket.
