Autumn 1
This term out topic is 'Why do you love me so much". We will be learning about ourselves, our friends and family. We will be asking questions such as, What is special about me? How do we show people we care and how are people the same and different.
We would like you to send in a photograph of your child as a baby. All photos will be copied and returned to you. You can also email your photos to Miss Burton at
