Welcome back!

We started the term with our new book for Literacy: The Lost Spells, by Robert Macfarlane. We performed the poem “Jackdaw” in the style of a rap! We also discussed some of the other beautiful poems in the book and started to think about the wildlife around us. We are looking forward to lots more poetry writing and performance over the next two weeks!

Our History unit this term is focusing on the story of the Windrush generation, building on what we learnt from Floella Benjamin in Year 5. We have found the Caribbean in an atlas and attempted to label all the main islands (there are many!).

A great start to the term.
