Mr Dixon

Term 1

We have been exploring a range of texts during our lessons and our class reading time. During literacy, we have been exploring ‘The Savage’ by David Almond, which has given use lots to discuss and resulted in us creating our own version of The Savage. We have also started ‘Noughts and Crosses’ by Malorie Blackman as our class reader and it’s already started off as very exciting! We can’t wait to find out what happens.

In Geography, we have been using OS maps to look at Bristol as well as other areas of the UK. It’s been interesting to compare urban and rural areas, and the features of each, then decide where we would prefer to live, and why, based on the features that we found of each area. Would you rather live in an urban or rural area?

We had an amazing time at Morfa Bay – the activities were fantastic (and the weather mostly held up). We pushed ourselves to have a go at everything from high wires and the mud assault course to bodyboarding and surfing in the sea at Pendine Beach. Thank you to all the staff who came to look after us and make sure we had the best time!
