The Wreck of the Zanzibar

Over the last couple of weeks we have been reading the Michael Morpurgo book ‘The Wreck of the Zanzibar’ as a novel study. The story has got us all really engaged and we are all really eager to find out what happens next! We have been writing informative reports about The Leatherback Turtle to tie into our novel! Lots of great reports were written using the correct style and features!


P5 Sixties Day!

Well, the time finally came – the grand finale to our Sixties Day!

It has been a busy couple of weeks continuing to learn about the sixties. We spent time learning about the space race, completed art showing VW vans, twiggy and designing our own sixties shoes, as well as learning about JFK. We wrote biographies about JFK to show what we knew.

We completed research in our home teams, each team focusing on two years of the sixties. We researched the key events and were able to complete a timeline showing all of the events.
