Welcome to Caterpillar Class
Our Topic: Fly Away Home
Our topic this term is titled Fly Away Home. ‘Home’ representing a study of historical and notable events in our local area, West Malling, learning about the seasonal changes we are experiencing as we move from a warmer summer to a cooler autumn and our locality within the wider world. ‘Fly Away’ is a nod to the local RAF base used in WWII and the idea of setting off on a new adventure in Year 1. I hope you will enjoy reading in more detail about how our creative curriculum will link our subjects to this theme on our Medium Term Plan.
