READING @ HOME
It is extremely important to read every day. Try to read a variety of genres. Remember, the more you read, the more you know and the better you write.
Please ensure that you bring your reading diary in each week with a signature from home.
Here is a reminder of which day we would like to see and check your diary...
A Desert Island – St Lucia Through using a variety of sources and exploratory techniques, we will develop our geographical knowledge of the both the UK and the world around us. We will explore and compare many different aspects, including human and physical features, climate and landscape.
Did you know that the patterns/ colours of flags that represent countries around the world are designed to represent different things?
We then used collage techniques to create our own St Lucia flags.
Did you know..?
The yellow represents the Caribbean sun, the blue represents the ocean, the white and black represent the people and the triangular shapes represent the Piton mountains (a famous St Lucian landmark.)
