Our topic for the next two terms is plants. We will be looking at:

- different parts of plants and their purpose,
- completing lots of exciting experiments and investigations to consolidate the children’s learning.
We will be making Florence Nightingale lanterns to brighten our hospital themed book corner.
We will also be creating shoe box hospitals – please do bring in your shoe boxes!
Our History topic is Florence Nightingale. We will be learning a lot of exciting things about her and why she is such a significant historical figure. We will be using a lot of this history in our English lessons.
The children will be developing their skills in dance with Miss Baratt and ball skills with Miss Roots. Please ensure P.E. kits are in school every Tuesday and Wednesday. Please remember that children are no longer permitted to wear tape over their earrings. If your child cannot remove them independently, please make sure they have been removed at home.
This term in computing we will be continuing with animation.
Miss Hyam will be teaching music every Wednesday – continuing to develop the children’s skill on the glockenspiel.
Our topic for the term is Judaism- Passover. The children will learn about the Jewish festival, how and why they celebrate it.
