Today we got our books!

This year we have been working with the Discovery Centre in London. We wrote and illustrated our story and it is now finished and has been published. We each got our own copies. It was really exciting to see our work and illustrations.

Hard work pays off!

We are really proud of our work and will treasures our books.


School trip

March 11th, 2016

On Friday we went to Stratford in London! We had an extremely busy day. We went as part of our story writing project ‘Catching Words’, with the Discovery Centre. When we arrived we went to the Olympic Park. We looked at the Olympic stadium and other buildings. In maths we had been learning about shapes so we went on a hunt to find as many shapes as we could. We also noticed the shadows on the floor. Working as scientists we discussed what may happen to the shadows over time throughout the day.

We then found a fantastic viewing area where we could see the skyline of London. We sketched the skyline thinking about different textures. This is what we will be looking at in art next term.

We then got to play in the park before heading to the Discovery Centre. When we got there we built a story together and looked around the centre for inspiration.


Catching Words

Today we had our visitors from Explore Learning in Stratford. We have started planning for our story that we will write and publish! (How exciting!)

We acted out one of the scenes to help generate ideas and dialogue to add to our story.
