Spring Term
This term our topic is 'Would you rather?'
 
This topic focuses on Understanding the World.  (All areas of learning are interwoven throughout the topic.)
In the first half term we explore the changing seasons and look at similarities and differences between things now and in the past - such as clothes, houses, vehicles and toys.
In the second half term we then focus on similarities and differences between places.

Little Owl class had a visit from PCSOs Ally and Steve this week as part of their PSHE learning about our community.  They talked to the children about what they do and the children even got to try on some different uniforms - this was great fun!
