Our focus for Term 5 is based around the book 'The Queens hat' by Steve Antony. The children will learn about the sights of London, the Queen, her corgi's and her hat!  We will scurry through London Zoo, travel up and over Big Ben, across Tower bridge and around the London eye finally finishing at Kensington Gardens.  As this book comes to a close the children will consolidate their learning of London and our Queen with a celebration to mark her Platinum year.
