Our theme for this half term is 'The World and Us'


In Geography we will be learning all about maps, physical and human features and exploring our local area.  In science we will be developing our understanding of healthy food, balanced diets and food chains. We will also take a journey into our digestive system! Design technology links to this were we will be designing our own healthy sandwich which we are sure will be tasty. 

Music and dance will be very exciting this half term- linking to our fantastic Festival on the Field.  



. This half term we will continue to focus on the book 'The Minpins' by Roald Dahl.



This is a lovely book that will spark the children's imagination and inspire them to write. Through this book we will continue to learn to extend our sentences with subordinate conjunctions, subordinate clauses and extended noun phrases. We will also look at how to punctuate speech correctly.

During the second part of the half term we will move to another exciting book-  The Egg by M P Roberson.
