A little bit of drama

In Bishop class we are looking at Narratives. Today we each got to have a chance to act out a setting using our drama skills. Can you guess where everyone is?

Today we had our very first session of Taekwondo! We learnt taekwondo is all about being able to defend ourselves and build strength but never used for hurting others.

It is fantastic to see so much enthusiasm in our reading lessons with everyone on the iPads to complete their reading tasks.  

Sharing our writing

We have started Narrative writing in Bishop Class today and it was fantastic to see so many students wanting to share their stories with everyone!
Miraj wrote about a teacher trapped in a supermarket.

Marwah told us a story about a mermaid who was stolen from the sea.

Everyone's work was a great start to our narrative writing and I cannot wait to see what else happens in each story!
