We’ve started the year with a mini-topic associated with sound.  We’ve been identifying sounds, thinking about how sounds are made and how we can change the volume and pitch of sounds.

Next week, we have a themed week: ‘Staying Safe’.

Our big topic this term is ‘Doctor! Doctor!’  We’ll discuss how people in the emergency services help us, how our bodies work and how to stay healthy. Your child will also learn about historical figures such as Mary Seacole and Florence Nightingale.  There’ll be a variety of art and DT activities, too.  This topic provides us with the opportunity to invite lots of people in for talks and we’re also planning a trip.  Our class novel is George’s Marvellous Medicine – you might like to read this along at home as well as in school.
