Welcome to the summer term!
Welcome back to the Summer Term! This school year has passed very quickly, it will be summer before we know it!
We have so many exciting things to learn this term in our new next topic, ‘Extreme Earth!’ As geographers, we will learn about natural disasters such as earthquakes and volcanic eruptions, and the impacts they can have on a place, both positive and negative. The children will gain an understanding of how the world is constructed and how this influences what happens in the natural world. As artists, we will create collages inspired by natural disasters, looking at the colours, shapes and landscapes before making moving images in DT.
This term also sees the highly anticipated start to our swimming lessons! The children will all have swimming on a Friday. They will need to bring a towel and suitable swimwear (a one piece costume for girls and either trunks or swimming shorts (that do not go below the knee) for boys). If your child has long hair please ensure it is tied up – either in a ponytail, bun or a plait. Children are welcome to bring goggles if they own any.
This term the year 4s will sit their Multiplication Table Check. The check involves quick recall of times tables from 1 to 12. We have been working hard on learning our tables in school, but it is always appreciated if the children could practise their club sheets at home for that extra bit of help.
What a busy term we have to look forward to!
