  • Our topic this half term is called 'Home and Away' and will have a geography focus of South America.
  • This half term in art/DT we are learning to sew using different embroidery techniques.

  • In music we will be developing our skills in reading music, playing tuned percussion and singing through learning Blackbird (The Beatles).
