Excitingly, last week we had a parent visit us for ‘Cultural and Diversity week’. This was an opportunity for everyone to get an insight into Polish life.

The children got the chance to see Polish money, discuss their education and even listen to some reading in Polish (it looks easier than it is)! This was a remarkable opportunity for the children to look at the similarities and differences between the culture.

Can you believe in Poland there is a law that females MUST have an ‘a’ in their first name?

To start with, the leopard is half leopard and a half headed parrot. In addition, he also has two spiky horns which he uses to protect him. He is as fierce as a monster and he angrily gobbles up his food. Although he is a terrifying monster, he is silent and brave. Would you be scared to meet him?

Can you pick out the S2S?

Roald Dahl had many influences in becoming an author. Firstly, he went travelling when he was 16 years old which inspired him to be an author because of all the things he saw. Secondly, he read his children bedtime stories. Interestingly, he made an enormous ball out of chocolate wrappers because he liked chocolate. As a result, this inspired him to write Charlie and the chocolate factory!

Can anybody name the type of writing that this is?
