Rememberance day 11/11/20.
Today we remembered all of the soldiers who risked their life and unfortunately died in WW1. Throughout the day we learnt the song 'The White Cliffs of Dover' and included our own actions, we then picked our favorite lines in the song and produced a painting of them. In the afternoon we designed and created our very own wreaths in memory of some of the soldiers who lost their lives in the war who were from Liverpool.
We created our very own feelings tree, to discuss our thoughts and feelings of our class text 'The Tin Forest'.
We are currently reading 'The Great Kapok Tree', this book focuses on the devastating impacts on rain forests and all that live there. We were able to create posters to inform people of deforestation. Within our posters we were able to explain how habitats are being destroyed and how there will be less oxygen on our planet if we continue to chop down trees,
