In terms 3 and 4 KS1 based their topic on Steve Antony’s book, “The Queen’s Handbag”.
In the story a sneaky swan steals the queen’s handbag and the queen ends up chasing the swan all around the UK. This inspired the children to learn all about famous UK landmarks, culminating in an exhibition at the end of term 4. For the exhibition the children created giant models of the landmarks.
We sent the photos of the exhibition to Steve Antony and he was so impressed that he came to visit us to talk us about the Queen’s Handbag and some of his other books.
Keep an eye out in the Mercury for a photo!
