Our home work for the half term break is to create a short story using the words below:-
Year 3 Year 4
Discover the dangerous and ferocious world of natural disasters and glimpse their savage and deadly effects. Visit the ancient city of historic Pompeii, frozen in time, then create your own blistering explosions from model volcanoes that fire foamy lava. Finally discover the properties of rocks shaped by Earths breathtaking power.
In English, we will be reading and studying a book by Dodie Smith:
What do you think will happen in this story?
Who do you think the main characters are?
101 Dalmations by Dodie Smith - Immersive Classroom Display
Since the beginning of term we have been immersing ourselves in 101 Dalmations.
In each key stage 2 classroom there is an amazing inspirational display that has been taken from each of the texts. See year 5/6 page for their scene.
