We looked carefully at flower pictures painted by Georgia O'Keefe. We described what we could see and then we used chalk, wax crayons and oil pastels to create our own large flower art.
We enjoyed reading the story of The Three Billy Goats Gruff, creating our own trolls and thinking about what they might say. We had a letter from the troll under the bridge, which told us that he would like some friends, so we wrote to some other fairytale characters to tell them how to find his house.
We enjoyed making dragons and having a dragon dance around school for Chinese New Year.
We had a visit from the poet Andy Tooze, he read some poems from his book and then helped us write a class poem about caring.
