Curriculum overview (Summer 1)

Here are some pictures of our interactive display table which should give you some clues about our next topic. We don't want to give too much away at this stage, as the children will be investigating these items themselves.

"I've got the magic in me"

This term we are starting a very exciting topic "I've got the magic in me" which revolves around the magical and enchanting Harry Potter books.
