Week 1: Welcome back everyone! This week we have continued with our narratives, moving on from character descriptions to settings. Children were given setting descriptions of various places, from a range of books, such as The Lord of the Rings, to The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe. They magpied ideas from each setting, writing words and phrases in different colours, ready to be used later next week to create their own setting for their story.
In topic this week, we researched the planets of our Solar System (for the purpose of argument, we classed Pluto as a Dwarf Planet, though this is widely argued). From this, we were able to work out the order of the planets relative to the sun and their distances. We used this to map out our Solar System, using our inflatable planets, at a scale distance of 1 footstep: 100 Million KM.
