Autumn 1 Term

This half term we are asking the question 'Where on Earth will I find my worth?'.

Our main focus will be around Geography looking at the different continents, the countries of the UK and the city in which we live.

We will focus a lot of our learning around the author Tom Percival and will be using his books as inspiration through out. We will be using the pictures within these books to create a colourful collage in Art.

Since the start of a new year can prove both difficult and exciting, we will be focusing on discussing our thoughts and feelings throughout our other wider curriculum subjects.
