Year 2 Writing about Malala

“Thank you for teaching us about Malala. Now I know how clever she is and she stands up for what she believes in. Her favourite thing is school. Thank you for reading the story.
My favourite thing about the book is the start because I do believe in magic. When she standed up I would stand up too. If I was forbidden from going to school, I would be sad. That’s why I stand up for what I believe in.
I didn’t know it was a true story.
It’s good she moved to England because in Pakistan bombs drop down and boys and girls aren’t allowed to be in school together. In England we don’t have bombs dropping down. I like doing the performance because I was Malala. On the carpet I liked doing the actions”

“I loved the part where we wrote a letter to Malala. I wanted to do the letter to Malala because I wanted to tell Malala what we do at school. I don’t want to stop learning about Malala.
Do you know why Malala got shot? Would you save Malala?
Does the whole world still believe in Malala?
I love Malala with my whole heart! I hope I never stop learning about Malala.”

“I liked the story because I agree with Malala because she is a nice girl and Malala should keep speaking up.
She is amazing.”

I liked the part that had the powerful men and when the children had no money to feed their family.
Thank you for teaching us Malala’s story.
I think we can do more writing and I told my Mummy that we are learning about Malala and I loved the stuff we learned about.
I loved doing the actions and when we did the play.”
