All of the English Classes participated in National Newspaper Week by exploring the parts of a newspaper, its layout, what goes into making a newspaper, as well as reliability of news sources. One newspaper activity that English Class first graders, working together with fourth grader partners, participated in was a newspaper information scavenger hunt.
The pupils needed to find, for example, an example of a TV programme that begins at 7:55 am, weather information for the day, the best comic strip, etc. Another newspaper related activity was making animal collages from strips of newspaper. The fine fruits of their efforts can be seen here on the Art page.
