Next week we are going to start some stitching and you will need: a piece of material ( anything will do, a piece of a shirt or tshirt ) ; a needle ( ideally one with a large eye ) and some thread. This is so we can practice some different types of stitches ! So please have a look around the house or put one onto your next Amazon / Morrisons order ( other shops are available ! )

Last week, on a map of Mexico, we identified that Mexico had three different biomes-desert regions/tropical rainforests and mountain regions. So, today, you are going to learn more about the three biomes and three other- an ocean biome, savannah grassland and deciduous woodland. This session, you are going to be watching 4 different video clips and reading a text about the six different biomes above. You will take brief notes about each biome, in preparation for making a ‘pop up’ information leaflet.
