This term our topic is 'On the Farm'. The children will be explore all of the different aspects of farm life including growing/harvesting crops, the food production cycle and caring for animals. As part of this we will explore what farming looked like in the past and what it may look like in the future. The children will also have the opportunity to hatch their own chicks in class and visit a local farm to enhance this learning.
This term our topic is 'London- Heart of our Democracy'. We will begin by exploring the city and its famous landmarks through a virtual tour of London. The children will be creating their own junk model London landmarks and comparing London to where they live. We will then move on and focus on democracy and British Values. The children will explore the Royal Family and discuss the importance of fairness when voting (in class).
This term our topic is 'Dinosaurs'. We will be learning all about (and how to pronounce!) lots of different dinosaurs. We will explore the past in relation to how times have changed since dinosaurs roamed the earth. To help our learning the children have asked our class fairy for a real dinosaur.. let's hope it appears!
This term our topic is 'Bears'. We will start by looking at bears (the animal) and then move onto teddy bears!

Alongside this we will investigate how Christmas is celebrated around the world and how it was celebrated in the past.
