A huge welcome back to Term 5!
We hope you've all had a wonderful Easter break and made the most of the lovely weather.
Our new topic this term will be '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!
During Art lessons, we will be spending time learning about and using printing techniques to make protest posters and t-shirts. We will also explore some new artists and imitate their styles.
We're also hoping to be able to visit some 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.
We will deliver our English curriculum through both of our books.
In Maths, our focus will be Multiplication and Statistics.
In PHSE, some pupils will continue looking at our goals and dreams using our Jigsaw programme. Some pupils will also be learning about the importance of keeping healthy and keeping ourselves safe in various ways. Once again, we will be working with Diamond Class and merging the classes, which was enjoyed by all students over the past few terms. As part of our Jigsaw PSHE lessons, we will finish our fundraising project from last term that got derailed due to Covid.
We will continue to practise life skills using the Talentino programme with Sally on alternate Thursdays alongside outdoor learning and PE.
