What an exciting first week back at school! We found lots of interesting clues hidden around the classroom. We worked as a team to work out what we will be learning about in our English lessons. Unicorns! We had a special visit from our very own unicorn expert, Mrs Pearce, who answered all of our questions. We will use these facts to write reports, following the Talk for Writing approach by Pie Corbett. As we learn more about natural disasters, we will apply the skills we have been using in our English lessons to write reports about volcanoes. We are looking forward to a day of exciting science investigations later on this half term!
