In class we drew a portrait of our partner and found out some information about our partner. We learnt that everyone is different and diversity is what makes our world a beautiful place.


We discussed feelings and how our feelings can change in a short space of time. We coloured in a picture of Matthew prior to listening to a story about him. Every time Matthew got hurt we folded Matthew over. We then had to say sorry and rub out any creases on Matthew. 


This story was told to help children understand that when we hurt someone with words or actions we leave a mark on them that stays with them forever even after we apologise. P5 really enjoyed this story.

Spiderwick Chronicles


In class we read the book Spiderwick Chronicles.


We worked in groups to predict what we thought was going to happen next in the story and we acted out our predictions.


We took on the role of the main character Jared and we wrote a diary entry from his perspective.
