The Tin Forest by Helen Ward and Wayne Anderson


Our book for this term is The Tin Forest. We are really enjoying reading this book and thinking all about how the man in the book feels. He lives in wide, windswept place that is full of rubbish. We have painted our own images of what a jungle would look like and thought about our hopes and wishes for the future. We can't wait to find out what happens next. 



Term 3 


Our new book for next term is The Green Ship.

Our project for Term 3 is - Tribal Tales. 


This project is all about The Stone Age, it is a history based project. 

We enjoyed learning all about The Stone Age. We learnt about the three different time periods and created our very own Bronze Age monuments. We learnt about how Stone Age people lived and how their tools developed over time.
