Our theme for Summer will be “The Great Outdoors.” We will be looking our school and its grounds; hopefully spending as much time a possible outside. We will be paying close attentions to trees and plants. We will be considering the suitability of natural and man made materials. And of course learning about a wedding celebration. All being liked into our Maths and English learning as much as possible.

Weather and seasons will be a topic that we will be leaning about throughout the year.

WHAT’S THE TIME MR WOLF? In maths this week we will be looking at o’clock and half past times.

In English we will be creating our non fiction books about butterflies.

We will again be getting outside as often as possible, looking at the changing season. We will be investigating the trees and plants around us and naming their parts and creating art.
