Summer 2022

 

We have so much to look forward to this term.  Crime and Punishment is our history focus and our key concepts are Grace, Justice and Power.  We will be exploring how the law, legal system and punishments have changed over the past 2000 years from the Romans to present day.  Lots of our English work will focus on crime as we will be studying the famous poem "The Highwayman" and reading the novel "Holes" - both which will make us question the idea of whether the punishment always fits the crime!  

 

In science we will develop our understanding of the physics topic 'light' and then learn about human development.  Portraiture will be our focus in art and in music we will be learning about hip-hop.  We will also be applying our programming skills to create sounds and melodies in Computing and thinking about whether saints are encouraging role models in RE discussions.

 

Fingers crossed the weather will be good, as in PE lessons we'll be over on the field developing our athletic skills and playing some team games including rounders.

 

And don't forget Bushcraft and PGL too!

 

So much to fit in - I can't wait! smiley

Don't forget to bring a reading book to school everyday. 

You always need your pencil case with 'Super Six', (Handwriting pen, pencil, rubber, sharpener, ruler and glue stick) all named, a refillable water bottle, a reading book and a positive attitude.

We spent the day studying the book "Mother Earth is Weeping" by Claire Donald and writing responses to the environmental themes of the story.  The poems, descriptive writing and art work were amazing.

Our Phase 2 book swap was very successful and we all enjoyed reading a new book that has been recycled from one of our classmates.

And of course, we loved dressing up as some of favourite books characters:  Paddington, Alex Rider, Dennis the Menace, Voldemort and the Dork Diary girls among others.
