Topic - we are looking at the wonderful world we live in. We are naming the continents and oceans and looking at the different climates in our world!
Science - we have been discovering the growth and offspring of humans and animals. We have considered the things we need to survive and how our differences allow us to adapt to our habitats.
We thought about how we are unique and different to those around us. We talked about how although we are different, we all deserve to be treated with respect.
