‘As each one does their part, we grow in love’

2024 Summer Term

Celebrating Summer Term 1


We have packed so much into this first summer term with our ‘Green Fingers’ topic where we explored different seeds, bulbs and conditions required for healthy plants. We are keenly monitoring the growth of our own sunflowers and have been carefully observing the different parts of plants to identify, sketch and even replicate in clay.

Jack and the Beanstalk has inspired our writing this half term with some wonderful diary entries as we took on the role of Jack, followed by the creation of some super descriptive plant shape poetry.

Our maths learning has seen us master fractions and work hard to tell the time and apply our knowledge to solving problems. We have enjoyed practising yoga and honing our striking and fielding skills in our PE lessons, learning how to keep safe in PSHE and in our computing lessons we have been classifying and recording data using pictograms.

Our top highlights of the term have been both our fantastic trip to Beaulieu where we were able to further our understanding of how transport had developed over time and compare and contrast the lives of children now to that of the Victorian era. Then ending the term with a fascinating space themed science week where we had the opportunity to visit the Wonderdome, create our own mini rockets, find out about the history of space exploration,  conduct an investigation into meteor ejecta patterns, present our learning in the form of non-chronological reports, taste ‘space food’ and even embark on our own astronaut training camp run by our friends in Year 6!

We are looking forward to next term!
