This term our topic continues with Healthy Heroes and Heroines with a History theme this term.
 
Here is a little bit more about what we will be exploring:

We will be thinking about significant events in our lives from the birth of younger siblings, to birthdays, special events/occasions, the Coronavirus Pandemic, development milestones and starting school. We will be looking at how the Coronavirus Pandemic has impacted us and the world and what that means for history in the future.
 
As Artists - we will continue to explore different medias including pastels, paints, and pencils to draw still life images and first hand observations.
 
As Designers - we will be explore mechanisms with a focus on moving pictures. We will explore how these mechanisms work and create our own moving picture linked to a traditional tale that we will be exploring within our writing.

As Sports stars - we will be developing our movement through gymnastics and dance. We will be exploring balance, movement and sequences.
