Term 1 and 2

Heroes and Villains

Our topic this term will be based around these two brilliant books.  We will use the texts to explore the themes of Heroism and Villainy, creating our own stories about Traction Man, information texts about unusual pets, letters and fact files.  Our Geography work will also be taught within the context of the texts.

Heroes and Villains Quiz

During our first week back, week we worked together to create our class charter.  We do this so that we all understand our rights and responsibilities as a community of learners and we wanted to share with you the expectations that the children have of us and each other.  We were so impressed with the children's sensitivity towards and respect for each other.  What a truly remarkable bunch!

Term 1:  The Amazing World of Traction Man!

The Spectacular Self-Portraits of The Super-Students of Year 2 and 3!

Draw with Rob!

During lockdown, the author and illustrator, Rob Biddulph, created a series of daily how-to cartoon drawing videos.  In fact, it was his self-portrait video that was the inspiration for our Spectacular Self-Portraits!

Now, Rob is back with a Saturday Art Club!  And the first episode will be tomorrow at 10am and as part of this, he's decided to introduce a new feature called #ClassOfTheWeek!  

So, as our current value this week is Democracy, I thought we could vote on whether you would like to take part in Rob Biddulph's Class of the Week?

We'll start our vote on Monday in class, and close the vote on Tuesday afternoon.
