During Term 1 the children will be learning about life during the Stone Age. They will be encouraged to ask questions that develop their thinking skills and apply this to their learning. Thank you to all the children who have added resources to our theme table this term. 

Above you can see how the theme table is coming along. If your child has chosen this as their home learning project then they need to make or bring something in linked to the Stone Age.

Please enjoy the slideshow that shows us in action! 

Term 2 is called Food Fiasco which was named by the children. We will be learning about where food comes from and how it moves through our bodies. Thank you to all the children who have contributed to the new theme table.
