As part of our learning, in Geography will be develop of geographical knowledge using maps, atlases and digital maps. We will also be exploring the physical and human geographical features of different types of settlements, including cities, towns and villages. In Science, we will be focusing on our 'Animals including humans' topic, where we will look at the nutritional needs of animals, as well as exploring how skeletons and muscles help animals move around their environment.  In Art we will be investigating Watercolour Art, learning the different brush strokes and techniques. We will use the work of local water colour artist Iain Mackay to inspire our work.
