I hope you had a wonderful Easter and you finally managed to see some family and friends outdoors. I am sure you have all been treated to lots of delicious Easter eggs.
So here begins the first half of the summer term. Our topic this term is ‘Rainforests.’ This is a geography based topic, so we will be using atlases, globes and maps to inform our understanding. We will be locating the tropics of Cancer and Capricorn on a world map and identifying a number of rainforests. We will learn to understand the climate and structure of the rainforests and compare it to that of our own. We will investigate the lives of indigenous tribes in the Amazon; their homes, food, daily life, culture and medicine. We will also link this topic to our study of plants in science.
It is our turn to have PE with Mr Herring this term. We will be developing our tennis skills and beginning to play some competitive games. Please make sure you come to school in your PE kits on Monday and Wednesday. As the weather gets warmer, it might be a good idea to apply sun cream before school as well, but also please bring your PE hoodie just in case!
Homework will restart this term. As usual, homework will be handed out on a Monday and is due to be returned on the Thursday of the following week.
