Dear Parents/Carers,

Welcome back, we hope you had a good break!

Over the next 7 weeks the children will be tackling the Learning Challenge Curriculum question, ‘Why is the rainforest so special?’ We will be introducing the topic by taking the children to Chester Zoo. During their visit to the zoo the children will be immersed in the rainforest environment and will be able to see the different animals that would be seen in a rainforest. The children will also be taking photographs of the different animals to use during their Art lessons this half term. For further information regarding coverage during this topic please see our overview.

PE:

Year 4LT and 4RW will have PE sessions every Friday afternoon. 4RW will be taking part in yoga lessons and 4LT will be focussing on our defence and attack tactics in tag rugby.

Can you please ensure that your child has appropriate PE kit in school at all times.

Reading and homework:

As always please ensure that your child is reading at home every night with an adult. Children also have access to Bug Club at home where they can read further books appropriate to their ability.

All children will continue to receive maths, English and spelling homework on a weekly basis to be returned the following week.

 

Thank you for your continued support.

Miss R Williams and Mrs L Tranter

On Monday 19th June, Year 3, Year 3/4 and Year 4 took part in a ‘Taste of the Mediterranean’ presented by Junior Chef.  The children became chefs for the day and used traditional foods from various Mediterranean countries to make a fruit crunch.  They were guided through the experience and learnt about the origins of the fruit and vegetables and explored some of the human features from each country.  The children had a fantastic day and they all had a chance to learn some cooking skills and try new foods.
