Now that we have returned the Queen’s Hat that was found on our school roof and received our lovely lions as a thank you gift, we have officially launched our London topic, Bright Lights, Big City. Neptune Class wrote letters to the Queen to say thank you for the lions that were sent all the way from Buckingham Palace.
Each class also looked at maps and videos of London and spotted various famous landmarks. We then had the very tricky task of building 3D models of these landmarks out of card – this took lots of perseverance!
We have been reading the brilliant book ‘The Queen’s Hat’ by Steve Antony.
In this story a sudden gust of wind blows the Queen’s hat off her head and it then goes on a journey around London. The Queen, her corgi and the Queen’s Men chase after it, having to climb over Big Ben, around the London Eye, through London Zoo and so on. Here are some of the story maps that we have been creating to help us retell this story.
Next week we will begin to think about our own stories that will be in a similar style to ‘The Queen’s Hat’.
