Autumn term 2018

How exciting that you are all back at Tyler's Green after the summer holidays!

This half term we are focusing on the topic 'ourselves'. This means that in PHSE we are learning about what makes us 'us' and what our responsibilities are both at school and elsewhere. In science we are focusing on the body parts we have as well as the similarities and differences between us and other animals. In art we will be using our body part knowledge to create beautiful clay and painted portraits. We also have a village walk planned where we are going to go out and look at the different features of our village.


Just before half term we will be having our first themed week - 'Inspirational People'. During this week we will be looking at different people who have made a difference to our world and who can inspire us in our learning.


After half term we will be learning about different explorers and inventors and thinking about what these significant individuals have done in their lives.


Any questions please just let us know!
