Our topic for the first half term was Brushes at the Ready and we had lots of fun learning about the different artists and where they lived. We looked at the different areas, music, food and culture in these countries and compared to Liverpool. We then had great fun creating our own masterpieces!
Our second half term was The Jolly Postman and we enjoyed dressing up as post people and learning all about what a post person does. We learnt how to write letters, wanted posters and text messages! We created healthy packed lunches for our postman during cookery sessions and made our very own postboxes.
