Information for Parents – Spring term

Myths and Legends/ Road Trip USA

Any further details about this term’s topic:

Myths and Legends

We’ll explore the key features of myths and legends. The legends of fearsome giants, crafty lake monsters and mischievous fairies will also be introduced to us. We’ll listen to Welsh harp tunes and learn to dance the ‘Lucky Seven’. We will visit the Brecon Mountain Centre to practise our map skills and listen to and dramatise a Welsh myth. 

Road trip USA

Buckle up and put your sunglasses on – this half term we’re going on a road trip across the USA!
We’ll start by ‘visiting’ the states where Native American tribes settled. We’ll use travel brochures and the internet to research New York. Using maps, we’ll locate the USA and find the names of the states. We’ll look at the amazing lights of Times Square, make circuits and create a program for a tourist trip around New York. Hopefully we experience some authentic American food!
