English: The Arrival - Graphic Novel.
In English our focus text has been: The Arrival by Shaun Tann. It is a graphic novel and is beautifully illustrated. It focuses on the themes of acceptance, moving to a new country and all its difficulties. The children have analysed its themes, written a class poem and have looked at creating sentences surrounding the imagery to help them to plan an emotive recount introduction. Next week they will write it.
