Our new term has begun and we are so happy to see all the happy, smiling children!

For the first two weeks of term, the whole school is taking part in a "Britain Through The Ages" fortnight and our class is focusing on the 1980s.

Then, for the rest of the term, our topic will be "The Great Fire Of London". To find out more, please take a look at our Knowledge Organiser below.

We have been learning about the artist Guiseppe Arcimboldo and we  have made our own fruity collages in his style too!
