In English we will write instructions for how to make a jam sandwich based on the book 'The Giant Jam Sandwich'. In Maths we will be looking at numbers to 100 to further understand the concept of tens and ones. In Art we will complete our collage minibeast influenced by the work of Eric Carle. In Science we will learn more about herbivores, carnivores and omnivores and in Computing we will look at different technology found all around us.
