We would like to welcome you back from your Easter break. We hope the children are excited to begin their learning journey for our summer topic ‘African Adventure’. We have created silhouette paintings, done some initial research on Africa, visited Wanstead Park, started African drumming and read an exciting story based in Africa called ‘The Village that Vanished’. We are all really looking forward to learning more about this fantastic topic and continent. We will be enriching our learning with many different aspects including; Music, Art, Drama and Science! We hope you all agree that it will be a fascinating term to come! Thank you for your continued support.
