Our Science focus for this half term is 'Plants' and as we look towards Spring, we cannot wait to explore and observe different plants and seeds. In History, we are looking at inventions! What a fun topic learning about how things from the past were made and discovered!

For our book band scheme, children have access to two books a week.
Book changing days are Monday and Thursday

Also every Monday, an e-book/s will be released on the Bug Club online learning platform.
