This half term our topic is called 'All Creatures Great and Small'. We have lots of exciting and cross-curricular learning opportunities over the next few weeks. Our new topic will heavily focus on science and the children will have the opportunity to learn about animal names, animal groups their characteristics. The children will also learn about nature and will begin to use their senses to describe a setting where animals might live. The children will also get the opportunity to explore the outdoors by going on a nature walk and will use this learning opportunity to write their own nature poem. We will also use our art and design skills to sketch and add colour to an animal picture in the style of the German artist Franz Marc.

 We will be basing our learning on the poem 'A Nature Walk' by Mariam Swinger and the story 'Wild' by Emily Hughes. Click on the illustration to listen to the story…
