Literacy:

This semester, 4RG have learnt about text types. Our particular focus has been on recounts, narratives and procedures. To complete and revise our learning and to celebrate our growth, the children participated in 3 different Kahoots. One Kahoot tested the students knowledge on narratives, one on recount and one on procedures. The children had a lot of fun in this interactive and non-intimidating learning experience.
