This term our theme is 'Carnival of Animals'. Please find our curriculum overview and knowledge overviews below.

Design and Technology

We had great fun designing and making our own animal puppets!


We have been learning about our continents and oceans and the animals that are native to them.

Handa's Surprise

We have been learning to use adjectives in our sentences. We tasted the fruits from the story and created a bank of WOW words to describe them. 

We innovated the story. We changed the characters and the setting and created our won fantastic narratives!



This week, we shared the poems from 'Rumble in the Jungle' by Giles Andreae

Please use the handout provided in your child's homework pack and discuss the book at home.
