Dear Parents,

Welcome back and a special welcome to our Year three children and Sid in Year 4.

This term our learning will be centered on the topic of 'Invention and Innovation.' We will be studying the history of Industrialisation, why it was so important and how our lives are different as a result. We will be looking at how important inventions have helped us in our everyday life. Our artwork will be inspired by an investigation into the works of William Morris and we will be creating characters and producing an animated cartoon during information technology lessons. During design and technology lessons we will be studying bridge design, including our local Ironbridge, and designing and building our own bridges. PE lessons will be on Tuesday and Friday.
