Middle

TERM ONE

So far this year the Middle school have been getting to know each other.

We have done this by asking and answering each other questions and reporting this information back to the group.

Along with other things we discussed were: where the people in our group were born, the different languages/dialects we speak, the musical instruments we play and the pets we have.

We have practised using the correct pronoun he or she, using the correct tense, using capital letters, turning statements into questions and many other things.
