Over the course of the first half term we immersed ourselves in fantastic examples of fiction writing. We studied the features of different fiction genres as well as identifying superb descriptive vocabulary used by the authors. We then used many of the best elements of the writing, along with our Space topic, to inspire our own stories entitled 'The Invasion'. Here is a selection of them.

We simulated the movements of the earth, sun and moon.

We had a fascinating visit to the synagogue today. We learnt so much about Judaism and were even able to hold artefacts and stand in the bimah. It was an interesting experience for all of us.
