Bluebirds tried to think what was meant by the word “banter”. None of the children in Year 3 had really heard of this word so to begin with they tried to have a good guess before looking up the dictionary definition.
Some Bluebirds were eager to use our BRAND NEW dictionaries to look the word up, beginning by looking for the first three letters “ban”
The definition read “playful teasing or joking.” Mrs Parry explained this was probably a term that older children tended to use.
The children watched the below film clips to gain a better understanding of banter and what to do if it turns bad.
