Our Brilliant Bodies
This half term we will be learning all about our amazingly BRILLIANT BODIES! The topic is predominantly science based and we will be covering
We are going to be linking our anatomy and physiology knowledge with our creative, artistic side and sculpting a piece of art in the style of HENRY MOORE. We had a great time at YORKSHIRE SCULPTURE park last week and the children loved looking at the impressive forms from different perspectives. I highly recommend the park for a summer activity for you and your family.
In ICT, we are going to be putting our new GDPR knowledge to good use and collecting data as part of surveys.
We also have some themed weeks this term
Local history/geography week
We are going to be developing our history and geography skills by investigating and exploring our local area. We are going to be using digimaps to develop our mapping skills of how the land use has changed, and using primary and secondary sources to prove our predictions.
There is also going to be a GREAT BRITISH TEA PARTY on Friday 6th July in honor of our own diverse and democratic country.
This is going to be an opportunity to physically hard and boost our fitness levels! Expect your child to be begging to go to bed at 5 after we complete circuits workouts, go on amazing trips, run a mile a day and stretch it out with some yoga. Make sure you child brings plenty of water to school and is fed with a hearty breakfast! We also have boxing all half term on TUESDAY afternoons.
This is where our business skills are sharpened as each class competes to raise the most money for the school by designing, developing, making and selling a product.The fair will be on Friday 20th July, so start saving your pennies now and come ready to spend!
This half term, summer 1, we are going to be learning about rainforests all over the world! We will be linking them to different biomes and climates, as well as looking at classification and adaptations from the planet most densely-populated areas (with animals that is!) of the globe. After learning about this habit- a place where most of the Earth's oxygen comes from- we will be looking at the global affect of deforestation.
Throughout the topic, we will keep you updated on our learning on this blog and we will keep posting updates on twitter!
This half term, we also have Becky on a Monday- Musical Theatre (The Jungle Book)- and Wednesday- Street Dance (Zumba inspired!)
Part of the children's homework this half term is to complete a project. It can be presented in any way but it must reflect the child's learning of one rainforest animal. The children will be asked to present them during the last week before Whit.
We have finished the The Rotten Romans!

This term, we are going to be learn all about the Romans. They were rulers of a MASSIVE empire stretching from Britain to the Middle East! We have a lot to thanks them for... but what? We will be learning about when/how they invaded, who resisted their command, the lifestyle that they introduced to our Celtic ancestors and what religion they brought with them- We have nearly finished the history topic so make sure you ask the children what they have learnt so far!
The children's history skills in Spring 1 have been AMAZING and they have learnt so much. they seem to really be engaging with this topic.
