A warm welcome back to school and the start of Spring Term 1.

We hope you have all had a lovely Christmas and that Father Christmas came to visit!

We will be starting a new theme this term entitled, 'From A to B'. Within this theme we will be looking in detail at how transport has changed through the ages.

We will look at the history of cars, George Stephenson and trains, a history of flight and compare the past, present and future.

We have also planned a trip to the National Railway Museum in York during Spring Term 1 to develop the children's understanding into the lives of significant people who have contributed to national and international achievements, including George Stevenson.

In English, we have linked our class text to our theme and will be reading the book, 'I am Amelia Earhart' by Brad Meltzer. The children will learn about the amazing life of the first woman to fly across the Atlantic. Image result for i am amelia earhart
