Whissendine CE Primary School

Term 5 - Katie Morag - island adventures


Year 1 – Katie Morag- Island adventure!


This term we are using the Katie Morag stories by Mairi Hedderwick as the starting point for our learning. We will be finding out all about Katie’s home on the tiny Scottish island of Struay and comparing it to Whissendine. There will be lots of Katie Morag challenges to test our resourcefulness, starting with following her recipe for porridgies. We will have a go at designing and making our own toy boats and set up a shop and post office in the classroom.

Very excitingly, we will also be heading out of school on our very own island adventure! Look out for photos on our class Twitter page and on the school website.
