In our English lessons, we have been reading the story of Little Red Riding Hood. While focusing on this story we have: sequenced the story, written speech bubbles, written our own Little Red Riding Hood story and written character descriptions for the main characters. We also acted out the story with a friend using puppets, this was our favourite activity! All of the children worked hard to remember the story and put actions to their puppets.
Our topic in term 1 was Flight
We learned about hot air balloon journeys, the history of flying machines and the migration of birds. We also learned about the seven continents of the world and designed and tested our own hot air balloons.
