Current Topic (Spring):

Bright Lights, Big City

Hop on board a big, red bus and head for England’s capital. Yes, that’s right, we’re on our way to London! This half term, we’ll take tea with the Queen and visit Buckingham Palace online. Using maps and research, we’ll locate Buckingham Palace, understand compass directions, plan routes around London and learn about the countries of the United Kingdom. Our research will take us back in time and to famous London landmarks, as well as giving us an understanding of what it’s like to live in a big city.  


Previous topic (Autumn 2): 

Paws, Claws and Whiskers

Big cats, small rats, tiny fleas and buzzing bees! This half term, we’re going to discover that animals come in all shapes and sizes! Meeting an animal expert will allow us to ask and answer questions, share information about the pets we have at home and write animal information booklets. We’ll study animal artwork, draw detailed animal pictures to capture their special features and make collages, sculptures and prints. The Tiger Who Came to Tea will make us laugh, and we will have fun reading and acting it aloud. We’ll spot similarities and differences between animals, look at different habitats around the world and investigate camouflage.
