During spring term we have our first BIG topic, this will be a cross-curricular approach to teaching topic and will cover: history, geography, English, art, D&T and IT. Our BIG topic in class 2 is Ancient Egypt; during the term we will be learning about their daily life; Gods & Goddesses; mummies; Tutankhamun and the geography of the River Nile. We hope this approach will deepen the children's learning and enjoyment of the topic.

This term our topic is 'Sensational Safari'; the class have been transported to Kenya where we have explored and discovered the national parks, African animals, Maasai warriors and the landscape of this thrilling country. This week we have made traditional African masks and we were very lucky to have Mrs Baker in to give us all a Kenyan experience which included singing traditional songs and tasting some of their local dishes. We are also linking our writing to our topic this term; we are in the process of writing some persuasive travel leaflets for Kenya which will be on display at the end of the term. Parents are more than welcome to come in and take a peek; the children are very proud of their leaflets!
