Mrs Liversage

We would like to welcome you all to Spring 2 and share with you what we will be learning about! Our topic this half term is 'Buildings' which will be a very large focus on Geography and Art. For homework we are asking the children to research a famous building or structure this can be in the country of their choice. Could you please present this as a fact file using pictures, drawings and writing. When was the building made? What is it used for? Plus any other information you can find out. If you're feeling creative you could even present a mini model of the building. This work can start coming into school during the week beginning March 30th. Good luck with the research!
