The Summer Term will begin with us releasing our butterflies into the World!  Our research question this term is 'Do we all like the same music and art?' and our concepts are Transformation and Diversity!  We are focusing on Creativity and will be learning about a variety of artists and Musicians.  We will be creating our own sculptures, paintings and musical pieces inspired by the natural World.   The key vocabulary that we will be learning includes words such as:  Transformation, diversity, creating, imagination and thoughtfulness.

In phonics we will be revising the phase 3 digraphs and their corresponding phonemes.   We will also be learning about root words with word endings such as /est/ed/ing/er.
