Term 2 is all about 'The Twits.' We met Mrs Twit on our first day back. What a rude, disgusting, smelly, vile woman she was! She was playing a trick on Mr Twit by putting worms in his spaghetti dinner. We will be finding out more about the characters from this story over the term.
In October we had a great day visiting Brunel's steam ship the SS Great Britain. We found out first hand what it was like to build a boat and what is might have felt like being there at the launch day. We explored the ship and enjoyed learning about all the different people they had on board.
Here are a few pictures from the day......
In Term 1 we learnt about Beegu. He was a lost alien. We made posters to help find her, wrote instructions for a new game she might like to play and we also retold the story of her time on earth using our Talk for Writing actions. Can you remember the story using the map below?
