Being a Kudu!

On our first day we will learn lots about Kudus. Being Kudu class it is important that we kow lots about these beautiful creatures. We will be learning where they live, what they eat and about the habitats they live in. We will be fact finds, watching video clips and creating some Kudu artwork. Ask your children about Kudus when they get home. Hopefully they will be able to enlighten you!

English/Phonics

We will be writing about a Journey in English. Our topic is 'Get Moving' and as an initial activity I will be asking the children to write about a journey they went on during the summer. It can be to a distant place or to a vuisit to Grandparents. Any journey will do!
