Welcome back 6K!
We are now in our FINAL term! Where has the year gone? It is great to have you all back, and so keen to get going after the Easter break.
This half term is slightly shorter, but will still be packed full of amazing learning.
This Half term...
In our English work we have started our new text 'Manfish' by Jennifer Berne. This half term we will look at lots of different genres of writing including biography and poetry. We weill also be linking this to our art project, using inspiration from Keith Siddel to create our own underwater creatures.
In reading this half term we will e looking at 'Great Adventurers' by Alistair Humphreys where the children will be learning about a number of famous explorers from around the globe. We will be working hard on our inference skills, and learning new vocabulary that can be linked back into our English work.
In Science we will be looking at Electricity, creating circuits and drawing them using scientific smbols. We will be investigating the components of a circuit and the impact they have on bulb brightness and buzzer volume.
Finally, we begin our final topic of 'Can we change the world?'. In this topic we will be looking at histroical discoveries in the air and sea, focussing on the great RMS Titanic. We will be looking at an array of art and writing to go alongside this.
All children have been given a school water bottle. This needs to be brought to school each day having been washed and re filled with fresh water from home. Children will be reminded at the end of the day to bring home their lunch bag and water bottle to be washed ready for the next day. We have turned off our water filter system so children will not be able to fill up their water bottle in the usual way. All classes have access to drinking water throughout the day should the children require extra water.
Our PE days are Monday and Thursday. On these days we ask that your child comes to school in their PE clothes rather than their school uniform.
Weather dependant they can wear their shorts and school coloured PE T- shirt and school jumper. If the weather is cold, then track suit bottoms/leggings would be more suitable. Trainers are preferable to pumps as it is possible the children may be outdoors for some lessons.
Outdoor Shoes and Coats
Please ensure your child brings a coat to school each day. We had a rainy start to the term but we are trying as much as possible to allow the children their outdoor breaks which may mean us putting coats on to go out in the rain as much as possible without getting too wet. Please ensure all coats are clearly named.
Please also ensure your child has a pair of outdoor shoes as our play area is on the school field. We will be using the field as much as possible.
