We have been learning about standard and non-standard English when reading Morris Gleitzman's 'Toad Away'.
Yesterday we investigated word origins and tweeted new verses to John Agard's 'Reporting from the front line of the great dictionary disaster' to our class Twitter feed @lps140club.
Today we have been learning some Australian slang and Gwyrdd and Porffor had a go at writing a conversation between Limpy and Goliath using as much slang as they could. Oh, and prepare for some really bad Aussie accents. They are far from ripper!
