Term 4 The Robot and the Bluebird
A Robot with a broken heart is sent to the scrapheap. An exhausted, migrating Bluebird shelters where the Robot's heart used to be; he builds her a nest of wires. The Robot loves the warmth and life the Bluebird brings to him and he offers to carry it through the cold lands to the warm south.

The Unsinkable Titanic
Term 3- The Unsinkable Titanic
Our core topic text is ‘Spirit of the Titanic’. This story is about fifteen-year-old Samuel Scott who had an accident whilst building the Titanic.
As the ship begins its maiden voyage, his ghost moves restlessly alongside the passengers and crew:
Frederick Fleet, the young look-out who spotted the iceberg and who survived in a life-boat with (the unsinkable) Molly Brown.
Howard Hartley Wallace, the heroic band-leader who played ragtime music as the freezing waters lapped at his feet.
Harold Bride: the junior radio operator whose messages echoed on, long after the ship had disappeared into the icy waters below.
In term three, our topic is history based where we will be learning about the Titanic. We will be learning about the voyage across the Atlantic sea which unfolded into a tragic event. In Science we will be focusing on forces, icebergs and whether different materials sink or float. In our Geography lessons. we will dive into the journey of Titanic from Southampton to its' destination New York.
Year 3 will have a Titanic themed day. We would like children to dress up as a third or first class passenger, or cabin crew such as the captain, waitress, look out or musician. A separate letter will be sent home with more information.
