Summer Term 2017

Welcome back! We have already had an exciting start to the Summer Term. On Thursday we took part in a workshop led by Ropewalk. We sculpted an elephant and giraffe in bamboo willow. We learned lots of new skills and had a great time working as a team. The results are amazing; we now have two giant animals in our shared area.

The workshop links with our topic on Africa, particularly focussing on South Africa. We have been pencil sketching African animals and we will also be painting the animals. Mrs Steele will also be coming in to talk to us about her time when she lived in South Africa.

Our art work will also feature aboriginal paintings to link with our English work on stories from the dreamtime.

In English we having started reading an exciting book called Journey to Jo’Burg. It is set in South Africa during a time when Apartheid was the ruling system. We will be writing diaries as if we are the characters in the story and writing our own adventure story.

In Science we are studying animals including humans. We will be going on a visit to learn about animal habitats in woodlands and ponds.

We continue to work with Chris Priestly and this term we will be focussing on athletics. This will help us prepare for our sports day at the end of term. We will also be completing our swimming sessions with a lesson on water safety.
