In English, the children have enjoyed reading ‘The Shaman’s Apprentice’, another rainforest-based story written by Lynne Cherry. It was extremely interesting to find out about the medicinal properties that rainforest plants have and the children recorded some of their favourite and most interesting facts into their English books.

Earlier in the week, the class enjoyed having their Life Skills lesson outside in the glorious sunshine. The focus of the lesson was on secrets. Jigsaw Jo helped the children to understand that sometimes it is good to keep a secret and sometimes it is not good to keep a secret. The children discussed how it may feel to be asked to keep a secret that they do not want to keep and who they can talk to about this.
