Our learning in the Autumn term

This term our English learning is based around the book 'Troll Swap' by Leigh Hodgkinson which is a lovely story about feeling like you don't fit in but how being yourself is still the best thing to be.

Our science topic is Habitats so we will be looking at the variety of habitats in our school grounds and in DT we will be designing and making a habitat suitable for a troll. Our Geography focus is maps, focussing on our local area and in Art we will be looking at the work of Joan Miro and creating our own masterpieces. 

We are also looking forward to being able to spend time in our mainstream classes again.

Our PE day is staying on a Thursday. Please send your child to school in PE kit (house colour shirt and shorts/joggers with trainers).
