This week, we have started to study two fantastic books set in imaginary lands. The award winning ‘Wolf Brother’ by the American author, Michelle Paver -featuring a demon bear on the rampage – and the fantasy classic, ‘The Hobbit’ by J.R.R. Tolkien. The Hobbit is an outstanding journey tale and features (see above) an encounter with Stone Giants who hurl gigantic boulders at Bilbo Baggins and his companions!

Year 5/6: What we’ve been doing this week

This week, year 5/6 have been researching Nunavut in Northern Canada, home of the Inuit people, in preparation to write letters to the equivalent grade 4 / 5 class at Nanasuk Elementary School in Ilaquit, the main town on Baffin Island.
