As part of science we will also look at animals including humans - their habitat in relation to these areas of the world. 

Other Relevant Information: 

Please remember homework goes home on a Thursday and is due in on the following Tuesday. Please listen to your child read as often as possible during the week. Reading is a very important life skill and needs to be practised as often as possible. Remember that reading does not just have to be their school reading book - they can read any book, newspaper or magazine or use a computer based reading program.
