Summer Term Curriculum and Learning
Information for parents about what pupils are learning this term.
Our new summer term topics are now underway and the children are already hooked. The Y1/2 children are busy finding out where the seaside is while the Y5/6 children are considering the fairness of punishments in Roman times. The Y3/4 classrooms are being invaded and the children are dissecting 'Viking poo'!
The lovely sunshine and warm weather has been very welcome and the children have been enjoying playtimes on the field. We do spend a lot of time outdoors in the summer term so it is important that pupils have sun hats and wear sun cream for protection. They also need trainers for their outdoor PE lessons.
Here are the Big Questions and links to curriculum newsletters for parents with details of what the children will be learning this term.
- Year 5/6 – Upper Key Stage 2 – Does the punishment always fit the crime?
- Year 3/4 – Lower Key Stage 2 – Has Britain ever been invaded?
- Year 1/2 - Key Stage 1 – Why do we love to be beside the Seaside?
