Getting Creative with Flags! πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ

As part of our Road Trip USA topic, 4BC worked hard to create the American flag using an illusion.

Library Trip! πŸ“š

4BC loved exploring all of the books at Hall Green Library this week! Remember to keep reading all of those books that were checked out of the library!

There are lots of benefits of reading! Here are a few..

  • Increases your imagination
  • Helps to build your vocabulary
  • Increases your concentration
  • Improves your memory
  • Can make you an excellent writer!

Performing Poems

This week we looked at the power of punctuation, especially within poems as it changes the way we read by using different expressions! 4BC added their own punctuation to a poem called ‘My Brother Helps Out’ and performed it to the class.

Here is a copy of the poem. What other expressions could you put in? Have a go at home with your family..

My Brother Helps Out

Can I help you make the cake, Mum?

Please, let me, I know how,

I can do it, ple-ee-ee-ze! Oh thank you!

Let me have it. Right. What now?

Oh yes, I knew that, this is easy,

I’ll be careful, I won’t hurry,

Whisk it like this, right? I’m okay,

Honest I can do – oops! sorry.
