You could hear a pin drop in English today. We read chapter 4 of The Boy in The Striped Pyjamas and listened to what Bruno and Gretel saw through their window. We drew a sketch using the information we read. Next we learnt about the place that they saw – Auschwitz!
The children were horrified, enthralled and so engaged in the learning.
We used what we found out to writ some really powerful setting descriptions.
