This term we have PE on a Tuesday with Mr Hall and on a Wednesday with Mr Kelly. 

Please make sure you have an indoor and outdoor kit with you on both days. 



In Art we will use the natural environment to replicate cave paintings like the hunter gatherers did in the Stone Age. 



Our topic is cleanliness and organisation. We will learn how to be clean and organised now we are getting older. 



We will look at internet safety before researching on the internet and using word processing to record our findings. 



We will use the carnival of the animals to show music through art.
