Hey guys, 

We are now beginning Summer term 2.

Our class topic is a geographical European Regional Study of Spain

  • We will be learning about where Spain is located within the world/Europe, the physical and human features, and the culture and traditions of the local population.
  • Our Science topic is Rocks and Fossils
  • In RE we will be considering how the belief in God affected the actions of people from the Old Testament.
  • In literacy we will be writing narratives, information texts and play scripts using The Green Ship by Quentin Blake and Traditional Spanish Tales for inspiration.

Each week there will be a new timetable of activities for you to do at home. Keep a learning log of your work. Click the link button to go to the weekly activities page.

The Summer Reading Challenge has begun!

 This year’s Summer Reading Challenge has been adapted because of the disruptions caused by Covid-19, and the impact it has had on schools and public libraries. To support parents and carers with reading at home, the Summer Reading Challenge has launched earlier than usual.

This year’s theme is the “SILLY SQUAD” – a celebration of funny books, celebration and laughter. The website will be completely free and there will be a place for children to rate and review their books, and as always, work towards their reading goal. Other special features include: video content, games, quizzes, digital and downloadable activities to encourage children to take part in the challenge, even though it will be from home.

You can join in using the following link: https://summerreadingchallenge.org.uk

Science

https://www.stem.org.uk/home-learning The widespread school closures have created new challenges for everyone supporting young people. STEM Learning is working hard to develop and roll out a range of materials, which we hope will help you. Our subject experts have put together a selection of resources – all of which are completely free for everyone to access. Our subject experts are also available weekdays from 8:30am to 4.30pm via our webchat, which you can find in the bottom right hand corner of all our web pages.

https://www.foodafactoflife.org.uk/whole-school/remote-learning/ Resources focus on key food themes within curriculum areas, such as where food comes from, cooking, and healthy eating, but also offer a range of opportunities for cross-curricular (interdisaplinary) learning. Many resources and activities use food as a vehicle to provide engaging learning via subjects such as: numeracy, literacy, humanities, science, PSHE/health and wellbeing, D&T, religious education, and art.
