Happy New Year, everyone! Our new year has started off brilliantly as we have all settled back into school and are ready for the new term. Our Topic this term is called ‘Way Down Under’ and is all about Australia. We will be learning about everything from the climate, landscape and history of Australia, to some of the weird and wonderful creatures that live there! We have begun a new story in English (‘Ossiri and the Bala Mengro’, by Richard O’Neill and Katharine Quarmby) which tells the story of a little girl living in Australia. We have also been using our previous learning about maps and continents to locate and compare Australia and Alice Springs. We have sent home knowledge organisers for this topic if you would like to find out more about what we will be learning, and homework for this topic has also been sent home. In Maths, we are practicing finding the difference between two numbers. What a busy week our first week back has been!
