This term's learning:

In Geography this term we will be asking 'What does it mean to be British?'  and we will look at the British Isles and investigate their physical and political features.   We will be going to London to explore the physical features of cities such as transport links and rivers and we will view the city from above on the London Eye.

In English we will read books set during WW2 from differing perspectives and write about what it might have been like to be a German child living near a concentration camp and in DT we will be planning a menu for a tea party which we will be hosting for our buddies in Year 2.  Details of all other learning can be found within the termly learning letter below. 

PE this term

Our PE this term will be taught on Tuesday afternoons and the children will swim on Fridays. The children will need full PE kit.  If you are unsure of the correct kit, please see the uniform policy which can be found on this website.

For the time being, we are suspending the usual Home Learning. We would really like EVERYONE to focus on finding books that they love, getting lost in great stories, and sharing those fantastic stories with us all at school.

We are asking all children to read for pleasure at least 4 times a week and make good use of their Timestables Rockstars and Read Theory accounts.
