This Half Term we are continuing our work on where our food comes from to consider basic needs for survival and the importance of a balanced lifestyle. We will also look at weather patterns and how the changing seasons affects the foods we can eat. We will be following recipes to prepare and cook ingredients safely. 

Our Literacy texts this half term to support our learning are the non-fiction text ‘Weather’ and a collection of animal poems from the book 'Carry Me Away'. 

We have been so proud of our amazing mathematicians and this half term we will be covering Money, Time and Shape.

In Art we will be exploring drawing techniques to show different textures.

In PE we will be developing our Athletic skills in preparation for Sports Day as well as learning some Yoga sequences.

Our SCARF topic this half term is 'Growing and Changing'. 

In Computing we are looking at data and information to create a 'branching database'/
