This week in English, we watched a movie called The Bridge to Terabithia. It is a film based on a book written by Katherine Paterson. The film is really good. It’s about a boy and a girl who become best friends and have an imaginary kingdom in a forest. They call the kingdom Terabithia and they are the protectors of it.

Jess is given his sisters old runners just before school by his mother. She thought his old runners were really busted so she got rid of them. His sisters runners were pink and he coloured in the pink bits with a black marker to try and hide them. He was really embarrassed by them.

We learned how to describe pictures and used two different pictures from the DVD covers of Bridge to Terabithia. We all gave one word to describe the picture and then put another word either in front of or behind the word to make a phrase. Then we put our phrases together as a poem. In the end we had one big poem about bridge to Terabithia. It was very good because it was actually like the film.

In English class today we took a test about describing a picture. We had to line out the page and write sentences about each square.

On Monday we wrote our letters to our penpals from a different school in Louth. We have been writing to them for a few weeks now and so far it’s been pretty cool.

On Tuesday our teacher gave us out picture sheets to describe to practise for the test. She didn’t tell us about the test until today though.

On Thursday our teacher gave us out mini white boards and showed us pictures on the projector and we had to write one word on our white boards to describe the picture.

This week, I learned about describing pictures and the names you give to each of the nine squares. For example; Centre, right foreground and left background.
