'The Gruffalo' where we be looking at character description.

Maths - Place value within 10 and then addition and subtraction within 10 and finally shape.

Science - Everyday materials and their properties is our focus for the first half term.  We also explore the season as part of our seasonal changes unit.  We will also be looking at climate change as part our sustainability unit.

History - 'Toys From the Past' is our topic.  We will be exploring artefacts from the past and looking at timelines.  What is the distant past, recent past and present.
