Our Learning Journey (Spring Term)

Into the Woods

Our topic for the start of the spring term is called  Into the Woods. Each week the children will answer a different question and will use geographical skills to do so.  The main line of enquiry is, why are forests so important? 

The Secret of Black Rock

The Secret of Black Rock | Book by Joe Todd-Stanton Erin loves to lie on the jetty, looking for the weirdest fish in the sea-the weirder, the better! And she knows the best ones must be further out, where her mum won't let her go . . .

Over the last few weeks, the children have been looking at the story of The Secret of Black Rock. They worked on those techniques used in narratives:  repetition, descriptive techniques, complex sentences to name just a few. Click on the links below to read their own stories.
