Where is our place in the world?

 

We have had a busy couple of weeks since we returned from Easter. Some of the children have been having fun investigating the challenges a Moto GP rider would face and what we would have to do to become one! Others have been investigating animlas which live in extreme environments and which challenges they face.

Thank you for all of the lovely home learning which the children are continuing to bring in on a Monday morning. It is very obvious that they have enjoyed finding out and exploring our key questions during this enquiry.
