Around The World 

The whole school topic for this half term is 'Around the world'. We will be reading 'Meercat Mail' and learning about the different places Sunny is visiting. We will then learn about new and different climates and pick one we think Sunny should visit - then we will write a letter from Sunny back to his family describing is new surroundings. Throughout this sequence of learning children will be given the opportunity to use maps and atlases and practise using these.
