Our Theme for this half term is Burps, Bottoms and Bile!

We will be finding out about the digestive system and what happens to the food we eat!

We will be focusing on Science and Art.


We have looked at how to look after our teeth. We used discolouration tablets to show where we needed to clean our teeth well!


Our RE theme is

Belonging to the Church

We will learn that the Bible is a story of God’s love and concern for us. We will learn that the Bible is a living book through which God speaks to us and tells us about himself. We learn that the Bible is one story told through many different books and learn about Moses, David and Jonah as well as learning how to find a Bible reference.
The children will have the chance to:
• explore how the Bible helps us to pray and experience how God speaks to us in the Bible
• participate in a liturgy and experience a guided meditation on a text from the Bible
