Good to be Me
In our final half term, we will be thinking about ourselves - keeping healthy and active, celebrating our successes, preparing for change, learning about staying safe and having lots of fun!
We have completed our topic of Distant Lands - we enjoyed learning about Kenya, writing our own traditional tale book, playing the African drums and welcoming our parents to an African Craft Fayre where we raised lots of money for the charity Build Africa.
We then compared Africa to places nearer to home in our topic - Local Landmarks. We enjoyed learning about William Shakespeare and Stratford-Upon-Avon. Take a look at the images below...
Our topics were Pirates and The Victorians - we had a pirate party and went back in time to St Johns House Museum in Warwick. Please take a look at the photographs below...
