Autumn 2 Spellings


See the curriculum newsletter to find out what we are learning.

In Autumn 1 we were learning all about the local area. We went to Askew Road to conduct a traffic survey. Then, we thought about what we like and dislike about our local area. For our half term homework we made 3D models of our local area.
