This term we kick start the year with a  powerful fable about friendship transforming the world when Adam feels alone in a strange new city and misses his old friends in his far away home. This award winning books sets the scene for our learning about Africa as we are introduced to the differences between this colourful continent and our own, whilst recognising that people and friendship can cross such boundaries.

These videos will support all our new learning in class  on the topic - Addition and Subtraction




In our new topic we will be learning about different materials - identifying the suitability of materials for specific uses and finding out how the shapes of solid objects made from some materials can be changed.

Click on the videos to learn more about our science topic at home.

Over the next few weeks we will be conducting various spectacular science investigations such as, which material is best for holding Mrs Li's tea leaves?  and which material is best for a cup sleeve to keep our hot chocolates  warmer in the winter air?



By first entering into the wild, the children will use a range of sources to find out about life on this colourful continent. A look at the UK and a fieldwork study of Nantwich will reveal how life in this part of the world compares to that in the different regions of Africa.
