Summer Term 1

 

aThroughthedoor

 

What an amazing first few days we have had. In History we learnt about The Royal Victoria Military Hospital and found out some fascinating facts. We went on our first virtual school trip to the Royal Victoria Chapel and we were just like Wondering Walter and asked lots of questions. We used our new knowledge and created something for the gift shop like a fact file, a leaflet or a souvenir memorial coin.

 We can't wait to see what is next as we step 'Through the Door' and start writing our very own fantasy story. 

 

 

 

Autumn Term 2

 We are having so much fun learning about pirates! We read the story The Pirates Next Door written by Jonny Duddle

 

This half term we have thoroughly enjoyed learning about many different journeys. First we learnt about the life of a soldier in a trench in World War 1 and how a nurse called Edith Cavell looked after many soliders. Next we looked at the booked called Journey. This book was unqiue as it was a wordless book and we wrote about some of the pictures. Finally, we wrote about the journey Mary and Joseph had to take to Bethlehem.

 

We had so much fun celebrating Christmas. We even practised our throwing and catching skills in P.E. having a snowball fight.

We are having so much fun learning about pirates! We read the story The Pirates Next Door written by Jonny Duddle and we got a message from Jim Lad to say he needed help as he had been captured by the evil Blackbeard! Luckily our persuasive letters to Blackbeard worked and Jim Lad was set free. To celebrate Jim Lad's release, we created pirate party invitations for our shipmate, listening to and following their specification.

We enjoyed learning a poem called 'Pirate Stomp!' We innovated the poem and changed the ending to include our names. We found this tricky very tricky!

 

Yo-ho-ho! Yo-ho-ho!

It's a pirating we go.
