Summer Term 2021

Welcome back! We hope that you have all enjoyed your Easter holidays. We are so excited to get this new term underway and have lots of fun activities planned for you all.

Our topic this term is 'River of the Gods'. We will be exploring life in the Egyptian times and really utilising our historical enquiry skills. In Science, we will be learning about what plants need and parts of a plant. We will spend time designing and creating our own Pyramid in DT and studying Egyptian Art. You can find out more on our Summer Term curriculum letter.
