Welcome to Term 6. With the better weather on its way, now is the time to get outside and get active! This term our topic is called 'Food Glorious Food'. We shall be finding out about eating healthily. We will learn about the different food groups and how each food group helps us to stay healthy. We'll be looking at the journey of a banana from a plantation far away to our shops here in the UK. We'll be using our geography skills to work out where the banana growing countries are and why we don't grow bananas here. Staying with the healthy vibe, we will be doing a little bit of daily doing exercise. We will be putting our physical skills to the test with press ups each week and we will be measuring our biceps to see if we can build up our muscles. We will also be doing circuits and improving our cardio fitness. We'll be checking our recovery rate after exercise. We are writing to entertain this term so our work will be tied in with the journey of a banana and also with the lovely true story of 'Wangari's Trees of Peace' written by Jeanette Winter. Take a look at the termly class newsletter and knowledge organisers for more details. These will appear shortly.
Welcome to term 5. This term, we will be finding out about our local area and in particular, we'll be learning about about Sir Isaac Newton. Did you know there is a statue of him in Grantham? Maybe you could take a look at it? We will learn about where he was born and find out why the apple tree in Colsterworth is so significant! We are even going to have a go at growing our own apple tree from pips! We will also be learning to identify common plants and trees around us. We have some seeds, kindly donated by Gates Garden Centre, which we will be planting and looking after. We are hoping to grow a variety of things to eat! Our KS1 gardening club will be running this term too. This all fits nicely with our Science topic on food chains and habitats. Look in the 'Our Learning' section for the termly newsletter with more detailed information about our learning this term. You also find the 'Knowledge Organisers' and spellings there too.
Look in 'Our learning' below for guidance on how to help your child at home with phonics. We are using the new Read Write Inc scheme and the video links and guidance are really helpful.
