Topic Summer 1

Topic work

Our topic this half term is ‘Let’s get muddy’. We are learning about how animals obtain their food from plants and other animals and simple food chains. We are learning about different food groups and what makes a healthy, balanced diet. We hope you enjoy these activities and have fun.
