Summer 1st 2022 News Update
This term our Key Stage 1 children have been learning all about different explorers. We’ve enjoyed some lovely adventure books, including The Marvellous Moon Map in year 1 and Meerkat Mail in year 2. The children did a magnificent job retelling these stories using actions and making innovations.
We started this term with some orienteering, where the children had to follow a set of compass directions to find a pot of marbles. In history we have been learning about the courageous Christopher Columbus and Neil Armstrong, focusing on how their expeditions significantly changed the way people lived.
In science we have been learning about living things and have had lots of fun exploring the school grounds in search of things that are living, as well as those things that have never been alive.
We are also incredibly lucky to be able to celebrate such a momentous occasion with our Platinum Jubilee celebrations. The children have been busy making beautiful pieces of artwork of the Queen and learning songs for a special concert. It certainly will be a golden memory for our children.
Our year 1 children have been working on their oracy skills this term as they have performed a sharing assembly for their parents about all their wonderful learning. It was wonderful to see the children speak with confidence and clarity. Our year 2 children have also made us proud through persevering through their SATs this term. They have all tried their very best and have worked extremely hard this year.
Next term we will be learning all about London, with a strong focus on The Great Fire of London. The children will be visited by some special firefighters to talk to the children about fire safety and help us re-enact the fire of 1666.
