IRA Visitors

This week we have been lucky to have two teachers come to visit our class; Miss O’Boyle from the English and Guidance departments, and Mrs Kish from the Geography department. These are great opportunities to help give us a taster of things to come when we move up to the IRA in August.

Miss O’Boyle visited us on Thursday and was helping to continue our learning about PEAR paragraphs, the format used to write critical essays in secondary school. We looked at a short poem about a cat and analyse it by looking at the similes, metaphors and alliteration that the author used. We learnt about connotations of words to help us understand the meaning of the poem.

This morning Mrs Kish visited our class and we were using maps to identify symbols. We also learnt how to read and write grid references. We really enjoyed our morning!
