Our topic this term is "Where My Wellies Take Me...." based on the book by Michael and Clare Morpurgo.  The topic will cover lots of geography, and we will be going out and about, exploring parts of our local area. Find out more about our topic this term, by reading our parent information leaflet below. 

On Tuesday 28th March, Class Two went on a trek to Taurus Crafts, as part of our learning about our local area.  We had lots of questions to help us find out about the centre, and interviewed several of the shopkeepers.  We were surprised to find out how many things you could do there, and enjoyed looking around to answer our own questions, and map making.

 

We were  also very lucky to have been allowed into the deer park on Lydney Park Estate.  We had fun as nature detectives, and didn't even frighten the deer away!
