End of Summer 1

We have reached the end of the Summer 1 half term!

Our topic this half term was Natural Disasters, where the children have explored a range of natural disasters including volcanic eruptions, earthquakes, tsunamis and hurricanes. They have used map skills and learned lots about the Earth’s structure. Our written tasks have been explanation texts and poems, in which the children have demonstrated a range of new skills.

In Maths, we looked at fractions and began exploring time. Please continue this over half term and encourage children to read the clock daily.

In science, we have studied rocks and soils. We carried out investigations that included classifying and comparing. We looked at fossil formation and the work of Mary Anning.

PE this half term has focussed on Athletics, where the children have built skills in running, jumping and throwing.

Next half term, we will be taking traveling back in time to Ancient Egypt!

Thank you for your continued support and for all the donations towards our Jubilee party. It was enjoyed by all and the generosity was very appreciated.

We look forward to the final half term!

Mrs Campbell-Whitfield and Mr Ward
