We are now able to have PE indoors, but we will continue to make use of the outdoor facilities when possible. We will continue to work on our fitness, and ball skills.
Our topic this term is Scotland. We will be looking at the physical make up of our beautiful country. We will be making comparisons with Spain, and learning some basic Spanish.
We also look forward to raising money for Children in Need, experimenting with seasonal art, and getting ready for Christmas.🎄
