In English, we have been reading The Water Tower by Gary Crew. To help us explore this interesting book we have been getting creative with some drama activities.
We created rumors about how the water tower first came to be. We shared the rumors with the rest of the class.
In order to create some interesting figurative language describing the tower, the children acted out parts of the tower and described what that part was using figurative language.
The children interviewed members of Preston (the town where the water tower is) about the mysterious happenings of the tower.
Next week we will be writing newspaper report about he water tower.
