Our Unit of Work ~

Our topic this term is called 'Big City Bright Lights'.

Using maps and research, we'll locate Buckingham Palace, understand compass directions, plan routes around London and learn about the countries of the United Kingdom. Our research will take us back in time to the Great Fire of London and to famous landmarks, as well as giving us an understanding of what it's like to live in a big city.

In Science, we will be making bread as part of a controlled scientific experiment.

Physical Education
