 Super Me!

We spent the Autumn Term being Superheroes and learning all about our super bodies.  Take a peek at some of the fun we had...

The Beatles

During the Spring Term we have found out all about The Beatles and their home town 'Liverpool'.  We found out some incredible facts about the Beatles.  Did you know that the original lyrics to Yesterday were 'Scrambled Eggs'?  Check out our Twitter feed for further details.


During the Summer Term we are finding out all about animals.  We can sort animals into vertebrates and invertebrates.  We are learning all about how to sort vertebrates into further groups of: Mammals, Reptiles, Fish, Amphibians and Birds.  Check out our Twitter feed for images.
