Welcome back to a new term and new year everyone, we are so pleased to have you back in school with us. We are really excited to start our new topic ‘Animal Magic’, we can’t wait for out trip to meet some of the animals we will be learning about!

Our new topic is called ‘Animal Magic’

We will be learning all about different environments around the world and the animals that live in them. Our key text for this term is Meerkat Mail so we will be finding out all about Meerkats and the Kalahari Desert where they live. There will opportunities to link all of the curriculum subjects to our topic including creating moving animal pictures in design and technology, learning about famous conservationists in geography as well as finding out about food chains habitats in science.
