Picture news talking task

by Mrs. Owen

Over the past 9 years, millions of people have fled their homes in Syria because of the ongoing war and conflict happening there. Many people left their homes and belongings behind, including their pets. Mohammad Aljaleel from the city of Aleppo is one of the few who have remained and looks after thousands of abandoned cats. The smaller Syrian town of Kafr Nabl, is now home to more cats than people. Humans and cats provide comfort to one another in hard times. Salah Jaar, another man who has remained in Syria to help look after the stray cats, finds them a huge help in what must be a difficult place to be.

Things to talk about at home

  • Do you think pets or other animals can be classed as our friends?

  • Talk about what kinds of things we think are important in a friendship

  • Why do you think the cats help make the few people left in the Syrian towns lives better?

Book Swap Boxes

by Mrs Collier

Thanks to Miss Porter for her fantastic Reading Assembly today.  She read to the children from "The Minchpins" by Roald Dahl and set a new challenge for the Book Swap Boxes.  Everyone in Years 3, 4, 5 and 6 unwrapped a book from the box at the beginning of the year and the children have been reading the books and returning them to the box to swap them.  Anyone who reads 3 books or more between now and March will be entered into a prize draw.  Remember to record which books you take in the file and remember to write a short post-it review for the display so your friends can see what you thought of the book!  Please blog about the books you have read or the books you'd like to read from the box in your classroom!
