Plays and Dialogues
As part of studying ‘The Twits’ by Roald Dahl we made dioramas of The Twits living room. Our classroom was as messy as we imagined their living room to be!
We have no completed our research about the different layers of a rainforest – the emergent layer, the canopy layer, the understorey layer and the forest floor. Next week we will be editing, redrafting and presenting our information text in an A4 ‘layered’ presentation. Look out next week to see our final forests!
