End of old topic and start of new.

We finished off last half term by looking at William Shakespeare and his play 'Romeo and Juliet'. We made our own Romeo and Juliet puppets and acted out the plays.

We also looked at the Wright Brothers and made paper aeroplanes as well as Arcimboldo (an artist). We created our own fruit faces. Here are just a couple of them.

We have now started our new topic of 'Where the Wild things are' where we will be looking at animals from around the world. We have looked at North America - focusing on Big Foot. We have created our own 'Bigfoot' footprints.

We are looking forward to the rest of the this topic and learning all about our World and it's animals.
