This half term our core text is 'The Great Explorer' by Chris Judge. We will also be reading 'The Lonely Beast' by Chris Judge during our guided reading sessions.
In English we wrote poems about where the Great Explorer might travel. Then we performed our poems as a group and used musical instruments to add sound effects.

To bring our explorers topic to life we went on a visit to Outdoor Elements. We took part in lots of amazing activities like shelter building, bread making and problem solving games. We learnt lots and got some first hand experiences for what it might be like to be an explorer!
In English we collected vocabulary to help us describe the setting of Antarctica. We thought about which nouns and adjectives we could use in our writing.
In P.E we worked on our catching and throwing skills. We practised finding space in a game, defending and marking other players.
In art we looked at the work of Ted Harrison and we thought about warm and cool colours that we could see.
