Our Topic 

Our topic in Term 1 is Guess Who? We will be learning about people from the past who have made our lives better today. We will be focussing on Tim Berners-Lee who invented the World Wide Web, William Saxton who was the first English printer and Rosa Parks who refused to give up her seat on the bus to a white man. In Art, we will be studying portraits of famous people and learning how to create our own portraits using different mediums including pencils, paint and photography. In our Computing lessons we will be learning about Information Technology and how it is used in our everyday lives. We will also be learning about e-safety and how we can stay safe when we are using information technology.
