Welcome back to Autumn Term 2
Our topic work this term will have a geographical focus looking at the city of Inverness and comparing and contrasting with Great and Little Shelford. We will be designing our own tartan, making clay Loch Ness Monsters and finding out about local wildlife,  land use and tourism in the highlands.

These are optional and should be brought into school during the week commencing 11th December.
  • research the local wildlife in the Highlands. Find out about Scottish wildcats, red squirrels, pine martens or a golden eagle.
