Welcome back to our Summer term. We hope you had a wonderful and restful Easter break.
This term, our topic has a focus on art and design, with the topic title “Take One Picture?” During this topic we will be studying Andy Goldsworthy and exploring how the natural environment can be used to create art and sculpture. We will take a broader look at the natural environment around the world and read a range of texts linked to our environment. In writing, we will learning how to write a persuasive letter to encourage people to recycle.
PE will continue to be on a Monday and Friday so please come dressed for PE on those days.
Please remember to read at home and practice times tables.
This term we are going to be learning about where we live and finding out about some of the physical and human features of the surrounding landscape. We will learn about the different counties which make up England and look at how the landscape differs in other parts of the country. We will also compare England to other countries, finding out about some of the similarities and differences in the landscape, as well as learning about some of their traditions and ways of life.

This term the children will be working on a series of sessions designed to support them in sharing and processing their experiences from the lockdown period, as well as gradually reintroducing the learning behaviours that they will need to accelerate their learning back in school.
During each theme the children will complete work on all areas of the curriculum with an emphasis on the creative arts- look out for our completed projects in the school grounds!
The children will also be working on their key writing and mathematics skills, through our carefully planned transition and recovery curriculum.
