After a brilliant start to the year, we are looking forward to starting a new topic and letting the creative juices flow. This half term our focus is the UK so we will be looking at farmland compared to cities. To support us in our understanding we will be studying the book 'The Sheep-Pig' which was written by Dick King Smith and was the storyline for the film 'Babe'.

First week back
What a fantastic first week back! We started our week by turning it classroom into a farm. We drew animals, used pastels to create farm houses and created our own cover for the book. We finished by having a competition for the best animal in show and we guessed the weight of the animals.
We were visited by Farmer Ramsbottom who has availability for a new sheepdog. We were trained by Sergeant Major Sheepdog Barker who told us that we should always be quiet, be sneaky and listen carefully to instructions.
We also started to design or farm vehicles which we will be creating in our design and technology lessons. We will be using a motor which we will use our science knowledge to create.
We had a worrying discovery this morning. We found a crime scene! We think a sheep may have been injured. We have collected the evidence, interviewed a witness and written a newspaper report to help the police find the culprit!
