Our topic in this Summer term is
'Keeping house'

 During this topic we will explore where we live and how we can look after our house, keeping it clean and well maintained. We will be starting off learning about different house styles and comparing different houses and their features. Following this, we will be exploring different aspects of houses, linking to gardening, fire, eater and electrical safety. We will end the topic by learning how to make healthy snacks and meals, learning about safety within the kitchen and with kitchen equipment.
Our educational visits will allow us to enhance our learning and allow us to apply and expand on our learning. We will be visiting different places of worship and looking at buildings and their unique features.
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 term.
