Geography - We will be able to name and locate the world's 7 continents and we will learn this through song. We will be looking at hot and cold places in the world and using maps, globes and the amazing internet to do our own research.

We have a Book Bingo in our reading area to promote reading for pleasure. Once the children have read a themed book (See Below), they write their name on the bingo card.  If they get a line, they get a lovely surprise and if they get a full house then they get a fun treat! Please help your child at home by encouraging them to read in the following themes.

The themes are:


A book recommended by someone at home


A book with an animal in it


A book recommended by a friend


A book that has more than 30 pages


A non fiction book
