Our topic this term is ‘Dragon Adventures.’
Our topic in Autumn term 1 is ‘Dragons Adventures’ based on the film ‘How to train your dragon’. First we will begin our topic with an exciting quest where we will be challenged to find the secret dragon’s lair before the evil, chief Viking. We will have to travel around the school grounds locating clues and then we will have to write a recount of our exciting quest. Next, in Geography we will be challenged to find out where the Night Fury dragon has been flying and swimming. We will have to locate and label the seven continents and the oceans in the world to find out where he is.
In Numeracy we will be linking to our topic work where possible and shall be completing a series of tasks in order to help Hiccup the Viking become a chief number cruncher.
In Autumn term 2 we shall be focusing on Guy Fawkes and the different seasons.
