Coming Home

Whilst you’re all cosy in your homes this winter spare a thought for migrating Scandinavian robins who make the perilous journey across the North Sea each year in search of warmer climes. This is the background to our new class book ‘Coming Home’ by Michael Morpurgo, which tells the tale of a robin’s journey home. We’ve been practising performing the story and talked about the way a story is read is important to our enjoyment and understanding. The children have also been creating art work which accompanies the story and we’ve been really impressed with their patient approach.

In our Science, we have been learning about the functions of the human skeleton and also were learning some of the more scientific names for our bones including learning why the funny bone is named as such!
