Pupil Comments:

In the morning before we srat reading work on big writing we have to guess the meaning of a word that our teacher displays on the smartboard. This is really fun! The person who gets the closest guess gets to look up the actual meaning in the dictionary and share it with the class. This week we learnt the weord ‘haste’- it means to do something very fast. I woud like to do this every week so we learn a lot of nwe words.
