Our topic for the summer term is called “Hakuna Matata”. This will be a geography topic where we will learning about Africa and comparing life in Wotton to life in Kenya. In science, we will be learning about animals, their habitats and plants. We will even have a go at creating our own African styled art work and try some African inspired cooking too. Our literacy will be linked to our topic and we will be reading books set in Africa, such as 'The Ugly Five', 'Lila and the secret of the rain' and 'Meerkat Mail'. We can't wait to find out all about Amazing Africa! 

Our topic this term is called “Once Upon a Time”. We will be learning about the significant event of the Great Fire of London as well as learning about what life was like in 1666 compared to now. In science, we will be learning about Everyday Materials and will link this to our history, thinking about what houses were made of back in the 17th Century. We will even have a go at making our own Tudor style houses during our DT project this term . Our literacy will be linked to our topic as we will be writing instructions for keeping safe with fire, writing descriptions of London as well as reading books like 'Toby and the Great Fire' and 'Vlad the flea'. We can't wait to find out what life was like "once upon a time..."
