We have been really busy in the first half of our Summer Term. So far we have been designing and making our own Troll, based on the story, 'The Three Billy Goats Gruff'. We wrote character descriptions and wrote our own story with a new baddie hiding under the bridge. Oak class voted, and we thought that 'Maleficent' was the scariest new baddie !
After this we moved onto the life cycle of a caterpillar and had a go at drawing it for ourselves. We read lots of different stories including 'The Very Hungry Caterpillar'. We designed repeating patterns for our caterpillars, and beautiful symmetrical wings for our butterflies. Miss Savory was very proud of our 'Life Cycle' writing and some of us even went to show it off to Mrs Newton. She was really impressed too !
We are now starting our flower topic and are waiting for our caterpillars to begin making their cocoons. It's going to be an exciting few weeks !
