Our topic this half term is : Tribal Tales!


In this topic, we will be learning about the Stone Age and the Neolithic Revolution. 

Our class text for this topic is The Boy with the Bronze Axe.

Our class are loving this story so far. We've used this text to write a report about Skara Brae, created our own diary entries from the point of view of different characters and we are now working on writing persuasive letters to characters who may have survived the battle. 


We're also working towards creating a movie trailer for the book in our computing sessions.

In computing, this half term we have been working towards creating our own movie trailers for the book - Boy with the Bronze Axe.
This week, we finally managed to create our puppet props, prepare out backgrounds and create some amazing videos.

These are just two of the fabulous creations that were, completely, independently made by the children. We are so proud of them!
