In literacy we have been following the route of Marco Polo, which links to our 'Explorers' topic, and have been reading a range of stories from the different countries he visited. We then stopped off in India to read an old folk tale called ' The old Woman and the Red Pumpkin'. We learnt to retell the story using Makaton, understand different characters view points and create our own folk tale from a different country!
In our Topic lessons we are learning about Tudor Explorers! To begin our topic we had to solve some clues to work out who the mystery explorer was on our Topic board - It turned out tot be Christopher Columbus!
Today we visited Red Lodge in Bristol! We've had such a fantastic day learning all about Dame Joan (A real life Tudor!) and her life at Red Lodge. She has shown us Tudor toys, foods, tableware and Tudor patterns to understand more about Tudor life! Have a look at some of our photos from the day!
