Context for Learning

Following the children's interests, our themes in the summer term will be 'Transport Through the Years' and 'Our Wonderful World'. We will be learning about different types of transport and how they looked in the past. We will be exploring our school environment, going on mini-beast hunts, making bug hotels and growing lots of things. We will continue to compare where we live to other countries and we will talk about the countries we have visited and where some of our family live.
