We are going to have to do our school work at home this week so there is a time-table below with activities to keep you busy. Please keep in touch via the homework email and stay safe.
Best wishes to you and your families.
See you soon,
Mrs Clarson and Mrs Cole
Summer One's topic is called 'Scrumdiddlyumptious!'
We are going to enjoy a yummy journey of discovery, sampling fantastic fruits and tantalising treats! This term, we will be using our senses to investigate different foods. Will we like everything we taste? In arts and design, we will look closely at fruits and vegetables and sketch what we can see. We will follow recipes and learn about foods from around the world. Our science work will focus on food groups and healthy eating.
Our main text will be Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl
Summer Two's topic is called 'Flow'!
From humble beginnings, the river flows down the mountain and into the sea. Pull on your wellies and wade right in. How deep does it go and how fast does it travel? What soil types can you find by the river? Which animals make their homes there? Let's get down to the river bank and find out. Now hop on a imaginary boat and travel some of the world's most majestic rivers - the Ganges, the Thames, the Amazon and Nile - and keep a journal as you follow their course. Time to investigate . As part of the local news team, it's your task to track down the source of some mystery pollution. Where did it come from and who is to blame? Let's meander through the world of rivers, taking a dip into their watery world.
