Termly Curriculum Focus:

 This term our topic is 'Once Upon a Time'

To fully immerse the children in their learning we aim to link all curriculum areas to the topic.  In English we will be studying character profiles and looking at designing our own medieval character and their personality.  In Science we will be looking at 'Using our senses'.  We start of by looking at our bodies and what makes us the same and also what makes us different.  We will then take part in a range of investigations using our senses.   In Art the children will learn be looking at the work of Raoul Dufy.

As part of the topic we will be visiting Windsor Castle on Thursday 28th November.  Please remember to return your letter if you would like the school to provide your packed lunch.
