Termly Theme / Topic

Year 1 are working on the topic of Dungeons and Dragons. We have selected the book The very Last castle to work on. We will be visiting local castle - Cyfarthfa and hopefully visit Cardiff castle. We are looking at how homes and life have changed over time, daily life in a castle, the job opportunities that were available. We will be investigating materials and completing an investigation based on which material is best suited? The children are working on developing and extending their vocabulary and focussing on adjectives and sentence writing. We will be writing a non chronological report based on dragons and invitations for the end of term banquet we will be holding. We are studying artist Paul Klee and creating castle artwork using a variety of mediums.
