A huge welcome after Easter. We hope you have all had a relaxing break and are looking forward to learning with us this term.
This term our topic is 'Farm to Fork'.
In Science and Geography, we will investigate where in the world our food comes from and explore maps & globes of the world. We will also focus on identifying plants and parts of plants. We may even make our own globe! Art will be using printing techniques to make protest posters and t-shirts. We will also explore some new artists and imitate their styles. We hope to go off site and see real life farms as part of our topic too!
Our books for this term are 'Angus Rides the Goods Train' by Alan Durrant and 'The World Came To My Place Today' by Jo Readman and Ley Honor Roberts, and we will deliver our English curriculum through them. In Maths, our focus is on Multiplication and Statistics.
In PHSE, we will continue looking at goals and dreams. We will be working with Ruby Class and merging the classes, which was enjoyed by all students over the past few terms. As part of this, we will finish our fundraising from last term that got derailed due to Covid.
We will continue to practice life skills using the Talentino programme with Natalie on a Wednesday morning. Check Evidence for Learning to see what they are up to this term. Cooking will continue on a Thursday morning as well.
PE will continue to be on a Wednesday afternoon.
If you need a new log in sent for Evidence for Learning so you can see your student's work, please let me know and I will get it sent to you.

Feel Good Friday, where we mix uo with other classes, is hopefully making a comeback after Covid disruptions. We are looking forward to being with our friends that are in different classes again.
Please send your student in with a named bottle of sun screen for the rest of this academic year. We are hoping to make the most of any sunshine that comes our way!
