Curriculum

 

In the Summer term our topic is based on the book Oliver and the Seawigs by Philip Reeve and Sarah Macintyre. This is a lively and entertaining story, involving exploring, a grumpy old albatross, a short-sighted mermaid and a friendly island called Cliff,  Many of the subjects will be linked to this topic for example in geography we will be looking at oceans and our Art and DT will link with the book

Swimming after term will be on a Wednesday afternoon. Please could all children have their swimming kits available that day!

What are we learning at the moment?

We have started our work on Oliver and the Seawigs- we have had a sparky start with making our own seawigs! We will be looking at Measurement in Maths and focussing on connectives and adverbs in English. Our new science topic will be on animals and their habitats. Watch this space for my updates!

We had a fascinating visit from Dr Jo Burch who came to show us a variety of exciting picture books. This is to inspire our project on making diaries based on our class reader of Oliver and the Seawigs...I am expecting some great books to appear!

We went on a minibeast hunt this week as part of our Science topic on habitats and living things. This proved to be hugely popular!

We had an interesting visit from Russian artist Yelena Papova who talked to us about how she makes paint from different minerals and encouraged us to create an "abstract" birds' eye view of the school.

We had a truly fantastic day at West Runton beach. We went hunting for fossils, explored rock pools and found many fascinating sea creatures and enjoyed a picnic and ice lollies in glorious surroundings. We were greatly blessed by being  accompanied by Mrs Coleman who enjoyed getting to know the children.
