National Readaloud Day or ‘Whoops, there goes a bronze whaler!”

Well, today was National Readaloud Day.

With my year 7 English students, we decided upon the theme of sharks and never did I spend a more gory 15 minutes than the one at the beginning of our lesson today – battling against the odds, staring death in the cold, fishy eye, coursing adrenalin and determined calm.

We are in the process of completing a descriptive writing unit, so finished the lesson by planning and either recording or writing our own stories for our class book (about Sharks, of course!), coming soon to a blog near you ….
