This week Einstein class ideated their initial reactions to The Alien Sands. After a long discussion, the majority of the children came to the conclusion that it was a metaphor to describe the unknown surroundings and creatures which live within this enchanted realm. Tom gave an excellent definition and explained that when something is alien, it normally means it has not been experienced before.
In Literacy today Year 5 wrote a recount of an alien experience they encountered this week – their workshops! Suddenly they were asked to deliver lessons instead of listening to them and prepare resources instead of completing them. Miss Coade even found the experience very alien.
Your key skills is to describe in detail another experience that was alien to you. It may be a new concept in Numeracy, or visiting a new place. The list is endless! Please comment below by next Wednesday. The recounts written will be on the blog soon so keep checking
