Autumn 1

Mini Mission 1 - Charlie Small Gorilla City


Throughout this mini mission in English, we will be learning how to write a detailed description of the rainforest using effective adjectives, verbs, adverbs and sentence openers. In Geography we will learn the location of the 7 continents and the 5 oceans of the world and will look closely at the rainforest biome, its layers and its importance. We will use natural materials in Art to create a print that represents the rainforest. 

One morning, Year 3 arrived at school to find that there were vines and creepers in the classroom! There were parrots, a frog and a monkey too! Then a letter arrived from someone called Charlie's mum asking for help to find her lost son, Charlie! After that a cut up picture arrived with a note asking which ocean someone had sailed over! Things were getting curious...the map was a map of the world which we used to find out where Charlie could have gone. Wherever could he be? Mrs Collinson gave us a book to read all about Charlie Small, we discovered that he had been struck by lightning while sailing his raft down the stream at the bottom of his garden. We can't wait to find out more!
