A huge welcome back!

We hope you've all had a wonderful Easter break and made the most of the lovely weather. 

We've got a very exciting topic this term, so it's time to launch into Term 5 and learn all about SPACE!

Curriculum overview

As mentioned above, our new topic for this term is 'Space'.

We will be learning about a different theme of space every week. Please find the weekly mini topics below:

  • Week 1 - The Moon
  • Week 2 - Astronauts
  • Week 3 - Rockets
  • Week 4 - Stars & Galaxies
  • Week 5 - The Planets
  • Week 6 - The Planets

Our class books will 'Space Song Rocket Ride' by Sunny Scribens & 'Dr Maggie's Grand Tour of the Solar System' by Dr Maggie Aderin-Pocock. 

In PSHE, we will  be focusing on personal hygiene and why it is so important to keep our bodies clean and healthy. 

We will also be teaching our pupils personal grooming skills, such as cutting their nails, hair washing, using deodorant etc.

Key Dates and other information

During Term 5, we will be doing our PE session on a Monday morning. This term, we will be doing 'Cardio Drumming' for our PE sessions. 

Pupils can wear their PE Kits into school for the day. We will send home any PE kit we have in school. 

During Wednesday mornings, we will be completing our PHSE sessions. We will be focusing on areas such as personal grooming and this will also be when we practise highly important life skills.

Our life skills this term are household chores related such as cleaning surfaces, preparing tables and washing/drying up. Our students will have the opportunity to ear a star every time they practise one of these very important life skills. 

Feel Good Friday is back! We will be mixing up with classes in our bubble to support our wellbeing and mental health. These sessions will provide your child with skills and techniques to self regulate their emotions and to learn and apply new coping mechanisms. 'Feel Good Friday' also allows our pupils to develop their social skills with others in various different situations. 

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!
