During the first half of the Spring term, we were focusing on the book 'Captain Flinn and the Pirate Dinosaurs'. by Giles Andre.
We really enjoyed reading this book. we made wanted posters to catch the pirate dinosaurs, we wrote messages in bottles, made treasure maps. We also described the characters from this story and made fact files about different types of dinosaurs.
Our topic for this term is Rule Britannia. During our Spring 1 term we have been learning about The Great Fire of London. We pretended to be newspaper reporters and wrote newspaper articles about The Great Fire of London. We discussed and sequenced events from The Great Fire of London and we compared similarities and differences between buildings from then and now. We also made skyline pictures of The Great Fire of London and Tudor houses.
In Science class 8 carried out a variety of experiments involving materials. We separated materials using filtering, sieving, dissolving and magnets.
