Our topic in this Summer Term is
'Looking after our house/ Keeping house'.

 During this topic we will be looking at where we live, focusing on local landmarks as well as famous landmarks in other countries. We will continue to look at our own houses in more detail and exploring different ways we can look after our house to keep it safe, well maintained and clean. Following this, we will be focusing on how we can look after ourselves - personal hygiene, preparing snacks and meals as well as supporting transition and change in personal circumstances.
 
Please find below, some useful resources to support any home learning. These videos and activities are some examples of what we will be covering in class over the Summer Term.
         
Become a Care Home Friend Challenge
 
Otters class have decided to sign up to the 'Become a Care Home Friend' initiative.
(Please see the flyer below for more details).
Each week we will be participating in activities linked with a local care home and learning more about the people who live and work in them.
 
We will be thinking lots about how care homes help those that live there, as well as having the opportunity to make crafts to send to a local care home to share the love with the community.
 
See the pictures and updates below =)
