Context for Learning

Following the children's interests, our themes in the spring term will be 'Animals Galore' and 'People Who Help Us'. We will be learning about different animals and how the countries they live in are different to our own. We will describe the features of different animals and go on a trip to Knowsley safari park to find out more! We will have an exciting 'zoom' interactive lesson with the National Gallery where we will be learning how animals are represented in different art forms. We will have many exciting visitors this term linked to our theme 'People Who Help Us' including doctors, vets, police officers and fire fighters to name just a few!
