This term we are comparing what life is like in the city and in the country. This will link to our next topic in which we will be considering what life was like during WW2 in both the city and the countryside. Our cross curricular topic approach to learning allows the children to make links and to develop a greater depth of understanding in all curriculum areas. Please see this term's curriculum plan for further details.

We enjoy learning through a cross curricular themed approach, and help children to see the bigger picture in their learning about the world around them.

Make Learning Fun!

These websites are particularly good for educational purposes and also are great fun for children!

If you can find any way to use these little and often with your child, it will really help them with their work in school.

They are fun and stimulating… but will keep your mind working!

Some have a small cost attached but some are free.. but you choose which suit you and your child best.

Let us know how you get on!
