The final term is here and it is a very busy one, so please keep your eye on the Weekly Words and website for all the information you will need.
This term our main topic is ‘Growing’ along with a number of mini topics as suggested by the children as we go through the term.
Within this topic we will be learning about everything that grows. We will be exploring human growth, plant growth, animal growth with a particular interest in the life cycle of a butterfly and the life cycle of a duck or chicken. We will be hatching ducklings or chicks, watching caterpillars metamorphose into butterflies, planting seeds and bulbs and learning about where our food comes from. It will be an action packed end to the year.
Alongside the main theme we will also be meeting Wallace and another teacher from our link school in Tanzania when they visit in June, going on a number of trips (including a very exciting whole school trip) and hopefully meeting and working with Chinese students.
Oh yes! And there is also the new intake visiting, a theatre trip, sports day, a wet and wild day, the summer fayre and an awful lot more!!!! All in 11 weeks!!
English / literacy

This will be a highlight of the week and will be led by the children and facilitated by the staff each week. We will start this on the . This will give everyone a chance to bring a pair of wellington boots in school if they are not already in school. As the weather improves it would be great if the children could also keep a to use as this will be cooler than the waterproofs. Please bring these in on the 5th May. Please remember long sleeves and no shorts / skirts as there are still stinging nettles in Forest school.
Hopefully the weather will continue to improve this term. The children MUST HAVE A as we do spend a lot of time outside and it is not fair if they have to stay inside.
