The children have all returned enthusiastic and ready to tackle on our new topics (which is good as we have a busy term ahead!).
First we are starting with a mini topic based on ‘The Night Gardener’ a beautiful picture book by the Fan Brothers. We will be using the story and characters as inspiration for our writing as well as creating art work similar to that within the book.
Our second topic this term is the vicious Vikings! The children created a rather frightening Viking called Stoik on their moving up day, who is displayed proudly in our classroom already. He will be revisited throughout the topic to aid with our writing and DT work. Also in the topic the children will learn about the Vikings and why they invaded as they did through stories, non-fiction texts, videos and hopefully a visit to Jorvik Viking centre.
That’s all for now, will update soon.
