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 study traditional stories and fairy tales.  In Science we will be looking at materials and making choices about the best material for our castle doors.   In Art the children will learn about drawing faces, producing self portraits for the Royal Gallery.

As part of the topic we will be visiting Windsor Castle on Thursday 28th November, you will receive a letter nearer the date.
