This week in Seadragons, we have continued our focus on Information Texts in English. The boys have been able to use ICT this week to help them produce an 'Information Plan' about the Gunpowder Plot. The boys really enjoyed using the computers to help them complete their work and they have done this to a high standard. The boys will then use their plans to help them find out the correct information about the Gunpowder Plot.

Seadragons have also finished their focus on Diwali this week and have made Diva Lamps out of clay. The boys moulded their ball of clay into a flat piece and then turned up the edges to create the sides of the lamp. They chose their own design with some boys pleating the edges of the lamp to create a different effect. They then painted their lamps using bright colours and glitter!
