What is our summer topic all about?

As part of the introduction to our new summer topic, the class looked inside some luggage. What was inside? Who do you think it might belong to? Where have they been? How do you know?

After we looked at the contents of the luggage, we decided that the holiday place must be somewhere that can be warm and sunny, but also cold. From seeing the American football shirt and cap, and the maple syrup, we decided it was a place in North America. We thought the maple syrup had been brought back from the place that had been visited.

We then tried a typical American breakfast of pancakes, bacon and maple syrup. This was a combination of foods that was very new to most of us, but was really enjoyable!!

Stone Age homes

We designed and then created a home or shelter from the Stone Age times.
We used materials like clay, sticks and stones, and we had to carefully think about how to make the home strong.
All the class loved making their homes, even if we did get a bit messy!
