Topic – Summer Term

This term’s topics are: Water, Water Everywhere and The Americas. We encourage them to learn this information at home, as well as carry out any additional independent research.

Water, Water Everywhere

Grab your wetsuit! We’re going deep into an underwater world of incredible coral and mysterious sea creatures. Head to your local aquarium and learn about life in the ocean. Can you pick a favourite fish, plant or animal? Time to go a little deeper into our seas. Make a model deep-sea submarine that can withstand great pressure and travel to the deepest, darkest places on Earth. Make sure you test it first! What are those bright lights in the distance? It’s a group of bioluminescent sea creatures! Look closely and create a colourful, 3D art exhibition when you rise to the surface.

Flippers on? Snorkel ready? Let’s head into the blue abyss…

The Americas

Buckle up, sunglasses on – we’re going on a road trip across the good old US of A!

Meet many Native Americans – the Chickasaws, the Cherokees, the Creeks, the Choctaws… Learn about their traditions, customs and lifestyles. Are any of their customs similar to those we’ve learned before? Tuck in and taste some delicious Mexican food – you might even make your own! Delve deep into the nation’s rainforests and create unimaginable collages and watercolour landscapes.

It’s going to be a long ride, put the roof down and let the wind blow through your hair – we’re off!

Other important information:

PE is on a Friday and swimming is on a Thursday. Please ensure your child is dressed in the full and appropriate PE kit on these days, including our federation hoodies. Children with long hair should have their hair tied up, and any watches or jewellery need to be removed.

Reading should take place every night (this can be to an adult or independently). Children should also practise their times tables through www.ttrockstars.com
