I hope everyone has had an enjoyable half term rest and are ready for a fun-packed final half term before the summer holidays. We will be continuing our topic of Under the Sea.

We will link our topic to Literacy; we will be concentrating on discussion texts and making a balanced argument. We will cover questions such as ‘should animals be kept in zoos’ and ‘should whales be kept in captivity’.

In Maths this term we will be focusing on shape, volume and capacity. We will learn about angles, 2d and 3d shapes and co-ordinates which we will link to our topic.

Our focus in Science is sound, we will learn about how we hear sound, making our own musical instruments and creating some sea life music using these.

We will continue to learn about Sikhism as a part of our religious education lessons, learning about special places, festivals, symbols and meanings.

We will be creating some under the sea collages in Art and making model aquariums in DT which will be inspired by our visit to the Sea Life Centre during this term.

P.E. will continue to be taught on Mondays, so please make sure your child has their P.E. Kit on this day.

French and Music will be taught on Wednesdays, so if your child plays an instrument please make sure they bring it in.

Library books and Maths games will be changed on a Tuesday afternoon during our library slot.

As the weather is getting warmer now, make sure your child comes adequately dressed and prepared for those sunny days with labelled sunscreen and a sun hat as well as their named water bottle for class.

Looking forward to seeing you all soon.
