Our topic is The Romans. We will take our lead from the children and their interests. We are also planning a visit to Hadrian’s Wall in Northumberland.

In PE, we will begin our athletics training ready for Sports Day and Glynwood Games.

We will be covering a range of Computing skills including coding, wordprocessing, data handling and graphics.
