We hope you had an enjoyable half term and the children are all eager to be back in school. We have a very busy and exciting time ahead of us. Our topic is based around ‘Traditional Tales’ and we will be launching this with a crime scene and a problem which the children have to solve. We are focussing on ‘Villains’ and trying to explore their characteristics and understand their motives. We will make potions and write instructions which include all the meaness and ugliness needed for the perfect villain! We will explore the story of ‘‘The Three Billy Goat’s Gruff’ and the children will continue to develop their story writing skills. We will be doing lots of experiments linked to materials and their uses. We will be bridge making and finding out how the shape and design of something can help it to be strong and bear a heavy load.
