Water, water everywhere

The Spring term is another exciting term where we will build on the firm foundations from Autumn in all the subjects.  We will be exploring space and sci-fi themes in English and Science, taking a wild ride with water in Geography and developing our use of multiplication, division and fractions in Maths.  The term will culminate in a performance by the whole year group of The Passion.
