You're Hired
 In this topic, we will be learning all about a range of jobs from carpenter to artist: the children will have a chance to think about their own dream job and how they would like to get there. On 6th February, we will be organising our very own Trade Fair, where the children can advertise and commercialise their very own business. During the following week we will be inviting a range of different professions into our school for our own Career Fair. The children have already been busy writing a range of persuasive letters in order to get a wide range of careers to come in. If you would like to participate, please let us know.
Science: Life on Earth
In this topic, we will be learning about Darwin's theory of evolution whilst also aiming to pose questions about our existence and life on earth. We will be studying Darwin's theory of evolution and looking at ways he recorded information so that we can do the same. This topic is very exciting and it is also accompanied by a trip to the Eden Project on 25th January 2019. There, we will be participating in a workshop entitled 'Darwin's Doodles'.
