Using 'The Ridiculous' Thinker's Key

This afternoon we used 'The Ridiculous' Thinker's Key to justify why people should be banned from swimming at the beach. This was our first session. Hopefully you will see our thinking skills develop as the year goes on.

Using our library at school

Today we spent some time enjoying our school library. We learned about how each book has a special letter on the top. When we finish reading a book  we needed to put it back in the box with the correct letter.
