Making Connections

Year 5 boys in the Middle School Library have been focusing on elements of what good readers do. A crucial part of this is the ability to “make connections” – and these can be either “text to self”, “text to text” or “text to world”.

Boys were tasked with identifying at least one type of connection from a chapter and these ideas were then linked together to form a paper chain. It is amazing to see the number of connections that can be identified within one book chapter.

Goodnight Mister Tom 

During their library lessons, Year 8 boys leaned about the blitz and the circumstances that lead to the mass evacuation of the children in cities such as London, Manchester and Birmingham to rural areas including Kent, East Anglia and Sussex during World War Two.
