Summer Term 2017 Homework
The topic for the summer term 2017 will be 'the United States of America'. For homework this term I would like the children to carry out research about the following area of the country: New York City.
We will be creating a Design and Technology display in the main school building as part of a whole school project and I would like the children to research city buildings, major landmarks, business, galleries, parks, people or theatres.
We would like the children to present their handwritten work on an A4 sheet of paper which could include some small illustrations.
The work can be carried out before, during or after the Easter holiday. It should be handed in by Friday 28th April.

OUR SPRING TERM THEME IS FAMOUS FOR MORE THAN FIVE MINUTES
During the spring term we will be exploring people who have made a significant impact in British society and culture. We will compare and contrast Queen Elizabeth 1 to Queen Victoria and we will also explore a range of artists, musicians and authors from the past.
During the term we will also be learning about humans including animals in our science sessions as well as looking for signs of spring! We will be exploring mapping and locations in our Geography sessions and in PE we will focus on dance and gymnastics. During our PSHE sessions we will begin to think about people who help us as well as how we can improve our skills.
