Our topic for the Spring term is 'Paws Claws and Whiskers'. We will be using exciting fiction and non-fiction texts to drive our topic and help the children to learn all about different animals around the world. 


In Geography in the Spring term, we will be learning about the United Kingdom. We will learn the names of the 4 countries and their capital cities and be able to locate them on a map.

In History in the Spring term, we will be learning about our local History. We will be learning about coal, chains and canals and learning all about the Black Country. 

In Art in the Spring term, we will be making tiger masks. We will be practising mixing primary colours and using our painted paper to collage our tiger masks.

In D&T in the Spring term, we will be learning how to make a book using levers and sliders. 


We are extremely excited about all of the fun learning experiences we are going to have this term and look forward to sharing them all with you!
