Commonwealth Games 2018 Oak class picked 'dominica' in our school lucky dip. During the games we researched lots of amazing geographical features such as amount of mountains and lakes as well as learning about the history of the commonwealth and the commonwealth games. Dominica is a beautiful country which has won just 1 bronze medal thus far. but we also found out about the dark side of dominica. We wish them luck and have thoroughly enjoyed learning about this small CARIBBEAN island nation.
On friday 16th march we finally celebrated world book day. the theme this year was 'Our heroes'. we all came dressed as the people that inspire us to ACHIEVE. some of these were heroes from books - fiction (such as harry potter) and non fiction (such as emmeline pankhurst, the leader of the suffragettes).
