This half term, we will be continuing with our geographical theme. We will be looking at:
As part of our science, we will be looking at sea-life and fresh water creatures. The children will be carrying out their own research using reference books and cards, iPads and lap tops as well as watching documentaries on the smart board.
In maths and English, we will be working our way through concepts the children need reminding about.
Rehearsing our Year 5 & 6 play, 'Dragon Days' will also be taking up quite a lot of our time but we are sure it will be worth it.

We feel that there are many benefits of the project:
During Eco Week, we would like to encourage all our pupils to walk, cycle or scoot to school and for our staff to park some distance away from the school and walk the rest of the way or to come on their bikes.
Would you like to get involved?
