Count by 12s Song



In our English lessons we have started to read, "The girl who stole an elephant" by Nizrana Farook. The book is set in Sri Lanka and has a range of incredible vocabulary.


The children will write a playscript based on a part of it. 

Vocabulary from Chapter 1

In geography, the Charlies have been fascinated at how rivers form waterfalls and ox bow lakes.

ENGLISH- We are still using our class book, "The girl who stole the elephant" as inspiration. We are learning about what makes a good non-chronological report in order to make our very own report based on Sri Lankan elephants (like the one in our book!). The children read a variety of reports and annotated the features.

ART - The children have been enjoying sculpture in art lessons. Here they have designed and created dragons' eyes out of clay! Aren't they impressive?
