Friday 5th November
This week we have been started our new unit of work in English, focusing on the book 'Town is by the Sea' by Joanne Schwartz and Sydney Smith. We have been researching mining, a key theme in our book, and performed a poem about mining. Miss Morgan was blown away by the performances and would like to congratulate everyone on their efforts - particularly Libby, Albie, Darcy, Finn and William for using brilliant actions, use of tone and rhythm and creating such an engaging performance. Well done everyone!
The talk homework for this week is to find out about coal mining in the UK. When and where did coal mining happen in the UK? What did it involve and how was the process carried out? What were the benefits and risks of coal mining?
