In geography 1U have been reading the book Meerkat Mail and learning all about Sunny the Meerkat who lives in the Kalahari desert! We wrote postcards to Sunny to tell him all about what the weather was like in the UK compared to the Kalahari desert. We then looked at what animals lived in the desert and what the weather was like. We did a comparison compared to the Arctic.
In History we have been looking at the life of Grace Darling and how her life influenced our lives today. We learnt all about her story and how her bravery and heroism influenced our lives today. We used role play to retell her story and thought out how the people would have felt during that testing night. We then wrote about how the people would have felt. We also learnt about what daily life would have been like for Grace Darling and wrote letters as if we were her.
