"It made it darker when we added black."
In RE this week, we all made a commitment to follow some new rules 5 times a day. We thought about how this might impact on our day and if it will help or hinder our learning. We will learn how this links to Islam later on in our unit.

We will all face the same way.
We will listen to music.
We will all move together.

Welcome back! I hope you all had a wonderful summer. The documents below show what we will be learning about in each subject area for this half term. The children have already suggested their ideas about what we should learn about and will continue to do so throughout the topic.
