Spring term

 


 
In March we had a very exciting experience!
We were reading some more of the Ironman when Mrs Mather interrupted us and said that an unusual object had been discovered in the school field! Year 4 were first on the case and went out to investigate what it may be! Some of us thought it may be the Ironman’s ear or a piece of the space bat angel! We were very careful and have sent it off for DNA testing!
We completed police witness statements, interviewed an eye witness and wrote up newspaper articles.

 

 

February was a very busy month!

We made Valentine’s day cards, enjoyed a lovely half term break, wrote our own Iron man story beginnings and practiced lots of Welsh poems and songs for our Eisteddfod!
 
We will be looking at the VCOP in our writing again
