Paddington visits year 1

Our new exciting topic is 'London' and we launched our topic with a visit from Paddington Bear. He arrived with his suitcase and jar of homemade marmalade. He came with a tag and we talked about what else could be written on it to make sure he is looked after properly. Using these ideas we wrote captions for his tag and a guide for how to look after him.

Extreme Weather Shelter!

We looked at extreme weather in the UK and around the world. We decided to create our own shelter in the classroom whilst listening to very stormy music! Once we had designed and made the shelter we decided it probably wouldn't withstand a hurricane or hail storm, but we had fun making it anyway!
