In our art we have been studying the work of American pop-art artists and have used repetition, colour mixing and collage to produce different effects!
in our music we have been learning and singing traditional North American campfire songs and by the end of term we staged a 'concert' singing the songs and enjoying singing rounds as well.
Our science learning has been the digestive system and we have been learning all about teeth, digestion and food chains. We took part in an investigation to find out which liquids were most damaging for teeth and to our surprise orange juice was even worse than an energy drink!
In our French learning we have been learning food vocabulary, including being able to say what we like to eat for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Now we are moving onto numbers 1-20, Je m'appelle, and J'ai ... ans!
This Autumn term we are swimming in our PE sessions.
We swim on a Tuesday afternoon during school time.
Please make sure your child has trunks / costume, a large towel, goggles (if they want), and a bag large enough to keep their clothes in once they are changed.
