LKS2 Curriculum

Summer 2nd 2022

Lower Key Stage 2 have had a fascinating half term. We have thoroughly enjoyed our ‘Extreme Earth’ topic (including living through our own mini heatwave!). The eruption of Mount Vesuvius in ancient Pompeii inspired some fantastic writing from all four classes and we even made our own volcanoes. We also learnt about earthquakes, tornadoes and made tsunamis in the forest. Our Science topic has been Rocks. We used Starburst to replicate the different types of rocks and investigated how they were similar and different using real life samples. In Design Technology lessons, we took part in some market research before writing a product specification and making a hot drink suitable for an explorer. We also took part in Sky’s Arts Week, exploring 3d mark making before making our own examples. We were very proud to exhibit our learning in our class gallery. Children who did Rock Steady lessons also performed in their own concert to parents. Despite all this, we think Activities Week has been our favourite. As well as learning to keep our minds and bodies healthy, we got to experience many other activities. We tried martial arts and did street dancing. We also spent the day at Brandon Country Park where we tried orienteering, scaled the climbing wall, joined in with team games and honed our archer skills. It was amazing!

Next half term we will be learning about the Anglo Saxons. This is one of our favourite history topics and one the teachers always look forward to teaching. We have lots of new books to read; especially now the Reading Chalet has opened at lunchtimes. We will be appointing new members of the School Council and also looking for Digital Leaders to support the teaching of Computing in our school. Could this be you?
