Where My Wellies Take Me KS1

Date: 20th Apr 2016 @ 7:41am

Welcome back everyone!

I hope you all enjoyed a relaxing 2 weeks off and the children are ready for a busy final term.

Our summer topic is called 'Where My Wellies Take Me', KS1 will be putting on their space wellies and zooming into our solar system to find out about the different planets, the sun, stars and astronauts. Within this topic we will also learn about Britain, using maps to find the countries and capital cities, finding out more about British values, learning about Queen Elizabeth and then celebrating her 90th birthday.

All the classrooms have rockets in them for the children to re-enact their space findings and some of us this term will be moving into our new classrooms!

The children have 3 very exciting things planned for this term:

Year 2 will go on their first residential to Tattenhall, and sleep over for 1 night. While they are there they will learn different British dances and create art work linked to British values. (24th - 25th May) (The powerpoint from the Residential Meeting is below)

Year 1 will join Year 2 at Tattenhall on the 2nd day and join in with the artwork. (25th May) (To wear old clothes suitable for painting)

Year 1 and Year 2 will be visited by a spaceman who will help us to launch rockets. (7th June)

Year 1 and 2 are inviting parents/grandparents into school to 'come and join us' as we celebrate Queen Elizabeth's birthday - if the weather is nice we will have a picnic outside and you can look at your children's books. (Friday 10th June 2pm)

Below you will find out topic web that gives you more detail into what we will be learning about this term. For the final summer term the children are learning Y1:4 and 1:5 and Y2:4 and Y2:5 on the spelling sheets, these can be found under the information tab if you don't have a copy, dates for spelling tests on under the calendar tab.
