Curriculum Information

This term we are using 'Penguin Small' by Mick Inkpen and 'Lots' by Nicola Davies as a starting point for some of our learning.  We will be learning about which animals live in cold places and which live in hot places. 

Later in the term we will be learning about the story of Christmas and how people celebrate Christmas. We will also be performing a play called 'Magical Christmas Journey.'
