Our topic this term is ‘Dragons Adventures.’
Our first topic this year 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 the ending to our quest story. Will your ending be happy or sad? 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.
