Roll up! Roll Up! Get your Fairground Posters…!

This term Year 5 have been learning all about fairgrounds. This focused learning has filtered into pretty much everything, including their reading, writing, topic, DT and computing work.

Here are some of the fabulous posters for ‘Zappo’s Fair’ that the children in Harris Hawks class have produced, using the ‘Pic Collage’ app on the iPad.

Looking at the posters, there’s definitely plenty of ‘pug love’ in Year 5, that’s for sure…!

The Escapist Tarantula

On a child’s birthday, he got his dream pet from his parents. A tarantula. “Wow Mum and Dad! Thank you so much!” He took the new arachnid upstairs to put him in his tank. But once the boy got up the stairs the tarantula curled into a ball and slit through the young child’s hand. “Come back……… Houdini! That’ll do as a name!” Houdini then flipped over the child’s grasping hands. Then Houdini ducked as a net swooped at him. “Mum! Houdini, my tarantula, just got under the newly laid carpet…” Then Mum ran upstairs, lifted the carpet…”Gotcha now Houdini!”

P.S That happened with my corn snake Shadow!
