Quality Text 

Each half term we use a quality text to base our English lesson around. This half term we are reading the ‘Little Red Hen’.



Our learning so far this year…..

During this topic we learnt all about London and the Great fire. We built our own houses and watched what happened when fire spread from one house to another.

Our very own superhero visited school…..


During this topic, we learnt all about different animals, where they live, what they like to eat and how to care for them.  We had a very special visitor, Alfie the Chihuahua and his owner Jo.  They taught us how to approach a dog safely and how to look after a dog.
