    Our topic for Spring 1 is People Who Help Us. We will be finding out about lots of different job roles and how they help people in our community. We are very lucky to have lots of special visitors who have kindly agreed to come and visit the children. We have a paramedic, the school nurse, police officers, fire fighters, the road safety team, a post lady, and a librarian. All these people will share information with the children and will provide a fantastic first-hand experience for them to learn about all the job roles that help us.

     

     

    During Spring 2, we will be visiting outer space! We will read lots of stories about visiting the moon and meeting aliens. You never know one may even pop into school to say hello? We will also look at non-fiction texts and learn lots of facts about astronauts, the planets and landing on the moon.

     

     

               

    We are looking forward to a very busy and exciting Spring Term.
