This term we are learning about...
This term we are learning about the world of minibeasts through our new topic 'A Rumble In The Jungle'.
We have been working extremely hard on preparing our class assembly which we performed wonderfully to our parents. During the assembly we shared with you lots of information that we have enjoyed learning about. The most enjoyable thing we carried out was our jungle dance; it was great fun and "we liked to get 'our groove on'. " A quote from one of the children.
Please see our pictures below of the assembly.
