Wagtails 2019-2020

Our Whole School Topic is The World of Work

We are learning about: People who help us

People who help us are all around us! In school there are teachers, teaching assistants, cooks, lunchtime supervisors and outside school there are police, paramedics, doctors and religious leaders. Wagtails will be finding out about the world of work around them.
