PE - Gymnastics - making different body shapes, balancing, moving across mats and benches in different ways and using the big equipment including the wall bars!!!!


Topic - Mythical creatures.

Question: Would a Mythical creature make a good pet?




All our learning will be based around answering this question. We will look at what Mythical creatures are and what different parts they have. we will try making our own Mythical creatures as well composing music to accompany different creatures. We will also look at how Mythical creature are used in stories and different cultures, making a link to the Chinese New Year.


During this term we also hope to make a visit in our local environment to look at objects and structures that help defend against enemies.
