Creative Writing - Scripts

We are learning to write scripts to create a play.

We know we are successful if our script has:

- a setting

Once we have written our scripts we are creating the plays using Puppet Pals.

My play is called "Death"

I have been learning about Peace Week.
Peace Week is an annual tradition organised by The Peace Foundation every year. You can learn more about The Peace Foundation by following this LINK.

As a way to learn about Peace Week I did three different Peace Week activities.

With Mrs Baker we made hand print doves and wrote messages of peace on them.
With Mr Horn we looked at the symbols of peace such as the dove and created origami doves.
