Curriculum Highlights:

This half term, we will have lots of fun whilst we investigate the question 'Why are humans not like tigers?'. We will be learning about the similarities and differences of various animals as well as learning some of the basics about humans. We are looking forward to a morning of discovery when we will welcome our visitors 'Animal Magic' on 22nd September and we will get to meet many different animals, including meerkats and tortoises.

As the season changes to Autumn, we hope to spend lots of time exploring the changes in nature and we will enjoy a walk to our local park or woods which will enable us to develop our creative writing and painting. Then, as the Christmas lights begin to appear around Roundshaw, we might have some extra excitement in school when all the other children have gone home to find out 'Why it gets dark earlier in Winter'.

Later in the year, as the weather turns colder in England, we will investigate how the climate is not the same in other parts of the world and Mrs Namayanja will introduce us to all the sights, food, music and dance of Uganda. Then, after Christmas, we will use all our fact finding skills to answer the question 'Why do polar bears live in the North Pole?'

We will step back in time to find out about 'The Great Fire of London' and as we look forward to our next summer holiday, we will try to find out how seaside towns have changed since grandad was a little boy. We might even have to go to the seaside to find out!
