Topic Summary

 Hello and Welcome to Greece Class.

This half term our topic is Out and About, the book that we will be looking at is Paddington Bear and following where in the world Padding Bear goes including Paddington goes to the garden, zoo, the palace and Paddington the Artist. We will be following the story of Paddington Bear in our sensory story. We will be writing and mark making postcards to Paddington on his travels. In science we will be exploring our senses, through experiments and cooking, in cooking we will be squeezing oranges to make marmalade for our sandwiches. In Greece class we will also be looking at the weather and the different places Paddington goes and what the weather is like. Looking at what we need to wear in the different weathers.
