Croeso i Blwyddyn 1 a 2 - Dosbarth Mrs Hughes a Mrs Walsh 

Autumn term our topic is: Marvellous Me!

This term we are helping Dr Nina improve her hospital. Unfortunately Dr Nina does not know enough about the body to help make her patients better and therefore she needs our help!

we are becoming body experts! πŸ˜€πŸ’ͺπŸ»πŸ‘πŸ»

We are learning all about what is inside our bodies, how it works, what it needs to stay healthy and how we can fix parts of our body. To do this we are going to be doing lots of research, reading and experiments πŸ¦΄πŸ’€πŸ©ΊπŸ§ͺ🧫.
Wish us luck!
