Dragon Class Timetable Autumn 2023

We have been reading Arlo The Lion Who Couldn't Sleep in our English lessons. We used the pictures from the story to write expanded nouns phrases. Well done everyone!

Dragon Class had a lovely day at the forest! Due to the rain we couldn't go climbing so we spent the day exploring the woods! We had a fabulous day and learnt lots about the plants and wildlife in the forests.

We had so much fun canoeing at Cod Beck!! Some of us were brave enough to jump in the water!!

Our new story in literacy is Arlo the sleepy lion.

History- Old and New Toys. In our History lessons we have been learning about old and new toys and the differences between them. We learnt that old toys were made out of metal and wood and they were made by hand. We learnt that new toys are usually made of plastic and by machines. We can also name some old toys.

After listening to the text 'At the beach postcards from Crabby Spit', we wrote our own postcard all about a holiday or adventure we have been on.
